Researching: family Gunsberger of Papa, Hungary, including Flora/Fradel, who married a Lazar. Bodansky, Hungary. Lafosky, Ukraine, Hackers, Austria-Germany. Anyone else? #austria-czech #hungary #unitedkingdom #ukraine #holocaust

Hey,

Researching family. Peter and Golde Lazofsky, who seem to have been born in the Ukraine, before coming to England. The Gunsberger family of Papa, Hungary, many of whom died in the Shoah, but a few survived (I knew some of the survivors). Flora/Fradel Gunsberger married a Lazar, and AFAIK Berel Lazar, Russian chief rabbi is her descendant, but I'm struggling to find the exact connection/line that connects her to him.

Also researching the Hackers: Irma Hacker, her brother Willy (I'm unsure of spelling. Pronounced 'Villy.') Irma was born in Austria, married a Hungarian man, Geza Gunsberger. Geza died in the Shoah. She came to the UK in '56. If I'm correct, there's also Bodanskies married into the Gunsberger line. 

If anyone else is researching these same families, I'd love to be in touch.

Thank you,

Yael Silver

Yael,
There are several family trees, managed by different people, on both Geni and MyHeritage showing Bodanskys married to Gunsbergers.  Have you checked either of those sites yet?
Best,

Yael,

I have a Gunsberger married to a Bodansky in my family tree. My 2nd great-grandfather Moshe Gunsberger, born in Deutschkreutz, Hungary about 1848 is the son of Benedict "Ben Tzion" Gunsberger and Betty Bodansky. I found these names on Moshe's marriage certificate found in the Hungarian vital records. Betty's last name is spelled Bedanzgi on the record and translated by the researcher as Bodansky which is what I have from family records. 

Ben Tzion and Betty had at least one more child, Aleksandor "Sandor" Gunsberger. They also had a grandson Geza born in 1893 who we believe died at a very early age as he would have been too young to stay in Hungary when the family immigrated to the US.

No other info on the two of them at this time.

My wife is a descendant of the Bodansky and Gunsberger families. 

I did some research on those families, and I can help you as far as I reached with my research. 

Rabbi Berel Lazar is indeed a descendant of those families. His father Moshe Lazar was the son of Yeshaya (Alexander) Lazar and Fradel (Flora) nee Gunsberger. 

Fradel (Flora) Lazar-Gunsberger was the daughter of Yehoshua Pinchas Gunsberger and Gittel nee Bodansky. 
Fradel (Flora) had a brother Gesa who married Irma, I don't know her maiden name, but it would make sense to assume that this is Gesa and Irma you mention. 

I came across a Wikipedia article about Dr. Isabel Gal who was the daughter of Gesa Gunsberger and Irma Hacker, which mentions her husband Endre Gal and her sisters Erica and Lia. 

My information about the Gunsberger and Bodansky families is beyond a post on this group, you can contact me for more details.

My maiden name is Ginsburg, my GGF was David Joseph Ginsburg from Chernigov, now Ukraine. They moved to this area from somewhere in Germany about the beginning of the 19th century to manage farmland, forests, mills, etc. About 1911 they moved to Detroit from Liverpool via Quebec. Eventually many of them moved to the Los Angeles area in So Cal.
As far as I know, we are not related to Bodansky families.  Might we be related?

Hi Susan
Do you have any male offspring who carry last name Gunzburg or Ginzburg?
If yes, did they do Y chromosome?
This can help link the families.
My Ginzburg family comes from Belarus Minsk.
My family shares y chromosome with De Gunzburgs
