Searching for Brom/Braun family in Lithuania #lithuania


Phil Goldfarb
 

I am hoping that there are some great researchers out there who can help myself and some cousins with a brick wall. We are looking for the name of the wife of Mordecai Braun/Brom from Lithuania. We know that they had at least three children: Elka b~1850 who married Josef Fivel Jacobson, a son Boruch b~1855 who married Sara Matushon and Rachel b.1864 who married Benjamin Lit/Leet. The last town that Boruch Brom listed on his ship manifest was Svedasai, Lithuania. We know that Benjamin Lit and his family lived in Radeikiai, Lithuania which is about 11 miles away. Rachel Leet had he maiden name as Broun on her death certificate while Boruch Brom's ship manifest and death certificate had Brom.
Any help would be appreciated

Phil,

I see that Boruch BROM arrived in the U.S. in 1931 with his (2nd? wife), and they were going to a step-son in Bradley Beach, NJ.

If Boruch remained in the U.S. than I suggest obtaining his death certificate.  That should list his parents names, and hopefully accurately!

My Brown/Brin/Brunn/Braun or similar ancestors came from Vishtinetz now Vistytis in Lithuania, but then Wiestyniec in Suwalki Gubernia in NE Poland. The name allegedly comes from the city of Brno/Brunn, now in Slovakia.They went in waves to Edinburgh, Scotland between 1868 and 1872, mostly in 1870, during the Baltic famine.

Have you searched the All Lithuania Database on jewishgen.org

I have been having a lot of success with the ALD for the past couple of months on extended family in Lithuania.
