Liba KONIGSBUCH GOTTFIERD From Oberhaid in the Czech Republic #austria-czech #usa #galicia

Dear Genners, 

Just discovered on Ancestry an entry from SSDI about Liba KONIGSBUCH GOTTFRIED who was born in 1914 in Oberhaid, Czech Republic. She died on Jul 1st 1998 and was also known as Libby Gottfried. Her father was Aaron and mother was Dobra Feilzut( all this is from Ancestry).
My maternal family is KOENIGSBUCH, a very rare surname all of whose bearers hail  from Brzesko, Galicia. Aron was quite a common name in the family and I am aware of one branch which
resided until 1940 in Michalovce, Slovakia. Oberhaid is totally new for me and I find a difficulty in tracing Liba/Libby.
Any help will be highly appreciated.

Dear Genners,

After receiving very helpful clues from several Genners( I thanked them directly) and reviewing my DB I established that Liba/Libby KONIGSBUCH is actually Liebe Reisel KONIGSBUCH 
born Brzesko in 1914 to Dobe FEILGUT and Aron KOENIGSBUCH. She is actually my late mother's second cousin. So I have another branch in the USA.
Liba has a son called Arnold Gottfried (b. 1947) in New York who lives probably in the Bronx. Alas, his phone # and email address as they appear on MyHeritage and other websites are defunct.
Please help me to contact Arnold, my newly discovered 3rd cousin. Please answer privately.
