RAND from Lutowiska #galicia #general


Does anyone recognize someone on the attached picture dated circa 1930. It must be a gathering from the Rand family. My grandfather Schmuel Rand was born in Lutowiska December 14, 1883 from ELIYAOU DAVID RAND and ZISSEL EISENBERG born in LUTOWISKA. ELIYAOU DAVID RAND was married a second time. My grandfather was a Cohanim.

I've seen the name in Poland. It isn't real common, but it is there.

Sally is correct.  I have a RAND from Baligrod that married into my WALTZMAN family.

Baligrod is not far Lutowiska, from which I also have family.
