connection to the SEER OF LUBLIN #poland #rabbinic

Daniella Alyagon

I am currently in Poland, took my dad on a family roots tour, during our visit to Lublin the guide said something that has now created a new mystery for me to solve and I hope you will have an idea of how to go about it.


Based on my Kozienice research:

  • in 1822 Abraham Rechtant and Ides Falenbogen (daughter of Hinda & Szymon Leib) were married (I have both the marriage record and the Allegata). Ides Falenbogen is at the time a resident of Lublin, house 406 (Szeroka 28 – same as the Seer of Lublin).
  • Ides died in 1885 and the death record shows her as the daughter of Szymon Leib HOROWICZ (another possible Seer connection?) & Hinda WEINMAN (this is the only record in which these surnames appear)

In the 1830’s-1840’s Lublin book of residents I pick up on Hinda Falenbogen (the mother of Ides) in house 411 family 5 – the comment has her living with family and the other names on the list are SZTERNFELDs (apparently the Seer’s grandson and his three granddaughters).


Do you have any Idea where can I go to try and find the connection between the Falenbogen surname and the Seer of Lublin?


Thank you,
