This website is a wealth of information of my past. My mother who is a Leventhall found a picture of her mother and grandmother and was very pleased and excited to see and be able to update her family.

Thank you Saul and I look forward to being able to connect to some of my distant relations who may now live in the US.

Thanks for this site. I didn't know my late grandma Annie Brightbart (nee Lipman) was from Lodz as WELL as my late granddad Jules. You also confirm they were first cousins.

 

I am the eldest son of the late Saul Marcus (Mark) Brightbart and Pearl (nee Dolberg). Very interested to see that my dad was named after his grandfather Mordechai Brajtbart. This spelling of the family name is also new to me. My brother Gary has a 21 yr old daughter Emma whilst our younger bro Richard lives in Munster, Germany. I have a 15 yr old daughter Miriam & 19 yr old son Sam, who is currently at (Oxford) uni studying French. I'm 54, divorced & about to remarry after 12 years of post-divorce life.

 

I am very interested about the apparent 'fame' of the Brajtbart family of strongmen. When we saw the film 'Invincible', loosely about strongman 'Zisha' Brajtbart, when it premiered at the Bradford Pictureville in 2001, Jack Brightbart was given a warm welcome when the cinema manager asked him to stand & take a bow, as the audience warmly acknowledged Jack as Zisha's oldest surviving relative!

Shalom Shmuel,

My paternal grandfather is number 6 in the "Photo taken in Israel on the occasion of planting trees in the JNF's Diaspora Forest, c. late 1950s" photograph. I have been trying to put together our family tree and found your site because I did a search for Kreplak. My Kreplak side is on my mother's side! I did know about Etka Leja Kowalski (nee Kreplak) but from a different Kreplak researcher and had no way to connect the families.... yet.

Do you have any other information about her and her ancestors?

I love the site! It is really wonderful to be able to put faces to all the names.

Thanks,
Amir Dekel

Hi - your site is wonderful, so informative! I have found some interesting stuff on there about a family I am researching. I am hunting down information for a friend's mother, Dwejra Laski/Laska/Lasky who came from Jedwabne to England in around 1938 at the age of 10. She left behind a father (Gershon) and, possibly but she is not quite sure, 10 brothers. I think one (Moszek/Moshe Laski) was married to Leja Binsztejn, which would make Moshe and Lea's two children - they are all listed on your site - cousins to my friend. Leja and her children perished in the barn burning. I don't know what happened to Moshe. 2 of the 10 Laski brothers survived the war, but Dwejra Laski did not have much contact with them. I believe they are now deceased. I was wondering if you had any more details, or if you can find another connection to the Laski family. Dwejra is very elderly now and any detail, however small will help her. Much much appreciated.

Greetings from Milwaukee, WI.

By way of introduction, I am the son of Eugene and Dorothy Tarachow. It's my understanding that members of my family had the opportunity to meet with you here last year. It was also brought to my attention that you were conducting research on the Tarachow family as part of your own family genealogical study that you had spearheaded. I just recently came across your website highlighting your results... I was quite impressed by your research and found it to be very insightful. Without your expertise and dedication, this great body of work would have probably never been available for our family to share. I would like very much the opportunity to obtain a password to obtain further information on Chaim Yankel Tarakhovski / Slava Agranovich and family.

Again, many thanks.

I just want to thank you again Saul for all the wonderful updates and work you put into www.shmuelbennachum.com.


Of course, of particular interest to me is the "Tarakhovskii Homepage" (Although I thoroughly enjoy reading about the rest of your family history as it is fascinating to me).

 
While pouring over the "Tarakhovskii Homepage", I consider myself so lucky, privileged really that you, Saul, put together this massive research project for all of us to share and relish.


Thank you.

Dear Adele Feldman (nee Kaitiff),


I just on the off chance whilst "mucking" around, put in the name Adele Kaitiff - not expecting anything. I was most surprised to see your name come up.
 

Who am I? I used to be a pen friend of yours in 1947/8. I was in Habonim at the time and hoped that I might meet you at one of the summer camps. It didn't happen. I would be pleased to contact you again. I come up to Leeds frequently where two of my children live.

 

With best wishes,
 

Allen Bordoley   [I forwarded Allen's e-mail to Adele; nice to know this site brings people together who are not just family members! - Ed]

My paternal grandmother, Mary Tarachow, was the daughter of Chaim Jankel Tarakhovskii, son of Shlomo. I had only heard remnants of family stories as a small child, but was always thrilled when my father, Dr. Bernhard Kaufman, received letters from his mother Mary's cousins, Alty and Marie Harris in England. They even wrote to me which was a double thrill from all the way across the Atlantic!


This massive undertaking is phenomenal, Saul, and your website a legacy for all of us, actually.


With much gratitude to you, Saul Marks.

Hi Saul,

I want to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your visit (and so did the rest of my family). I'm also glad that your two other cousins came too, but by a unfortunate reason (totalled car). I hope you enjoyed yourself in the States and that you will visit again.

I'm glad you accessed your website and Jose's website here in my house. I looked through yours somewhat quickly but I was quite impressed by your work. I do want to point out one thing. In referring to the family going to, visiting or living in "Israel" before the war, you should replace Israel with "Palestine." As you know, Israel did not become a state until 1948.

You mentioned that you have "tons" of emails waiting for you. Don't feel that it's necessary to answer me right away. I'll be checking my email account probably on the week-ends.

I hope all is well.

With Best Regards,

Harriet

I was referred to your wonderful web site by my sister, April Rosenfeld and by my nephew Adam Peters. I am in touch with my Aunti Eileen Rothstein with whom I have lunch every week and I love her very much. She is always telling me wonderful stories about our wonderful family and I pass these tales onto my children. I would like to add to your family tree, as my son Adam Levine is engaged to a lovely girl, Stephanie Roy and they have a beautiful son, Noah Zack. He is 7 months old and they will be getting married next July 21st, 2007. I am fascinated about the amount of family we have all over the world, especially since we have so little family here in Montreal. Thank you so very much for you passion and passing all this information on to us. I would love to meet you some day. We could probably share so very much.

Fondly,

I saw your website and liked it very much. Congratulations for the beautiful work you did.

 

Your Tarakhovskii family lived in Donetsk, Ekaterinoslav Gubernia, Ukraine. My family was also, originally, from the same place, when it was still called Yuzovka, then it changed to Stalino and then to Donetsk. I would like to know if you have the GUREVICH or AIZIM (or variations) families in your family tree.

 

I invite you to visit my website with a photo album of the Gurevich's at: http://www.geocities.com/elianaaizim/photo2.html.

I am also looking for any Goldberg born in Riga and arrived to Brooklyn ; they were living till the WWII. : the sister of my grandmother (Jenny) born GOLDBERG in Riga and her children. Their mother was born BERG : Her name was may be " Emy " ; she came in States between 1900 and 1920 ; she was married with a man whose name was may be " Hermann " ; she was living in Brooklyn with her husband and her two or three children (a girl and a boy who played piano ?). She was used to write to her sister Jenny Kirschenbaum (my grandmother) who was living in Strasbourg (France).

 

My grandmother, was married with my grandfather Leon Kirschenbaum ; they had 4 children (my mother Frida, my aunt Emy and 2 boys Daniel and Henry who have been killed during the Holocaust with my grandmother).


Since the Second World War we do not have any information about them.


Family names I'm researching : Goldberg, Berg, Gros(s)lerner, Kirschenbaum,
Kochmann or Korkmann.


Thank you
Sincerely
Jenny

I went to your web sections and must say I was very impressed, and found them fascinating.  I've often said that genealogy is fun because it is a mystery story - one in which you are personally involved - and each history is both unique and really of interest to just one person, family, or a relatively small group of people.  You proved me wrong - altho I do not know you or your family, I was spellbound just the same.  Good job!

Saul I know we have never met but my mother and father Leon and Barbara Goodman you have. I am curious to know how far around the world the family is spread? As you know when my parents visited England they decided to check to see if there was any surviving relatives or ones they had never met and by use of the phone book and some calls they located their now extended family and on the occasion when you all met was the photo on your page. My father was so overwhelmed at meeting you all. Your work and the site is great. WELL DONE, Love from Tracey Goodman XXXXXX

I always said you did the wrong degree, you should have studied genealogy from the off!

Mazeltov on this excellent site, I always knew you had it in you to work hard, shame our dissertation was not based on this, we would have had 1sts!

Good luck with this project,

Just had a minute this evening to have a look closer look at your site (with special reference to the Debovitch side). It is really terrific and the photos bring back memories from what I thought was yesterday, but is now some 45 years ago. I'll be in touch again when I've digested more.....you know you can't take such rich food in in big portions!

This site is a fantastic achievement! Saul, I am just delighted that I was able to play a role in your discovery of the American Kovalsky parts of the Kowalski family tree. The series of events that began at the Western Wall in Jerusalem on August 12, 2004 will always be a spiritually thrilling memory for me! Our whole family is looking forward to meeting you in London in August. Yasher Koach, dear second cousin once removed. Love, Robin.

This is a masterpiece. What an absolute triumph. Who knew that your mild interest in tracing your roots years ago would turn into something so impressive? And, of course, a timely tribute to your grandmother. I have passed on the details to my family and am sure they too will enjoy and marvel at the site. Mazal tov!

Hi Saul, Remember me. I am glad all that History teaching has come in useful. I am very impressed by my quick look around your site and will return to look at it further. I am now a Deputy Head at Nottingham High School and one of my responsibilities is for the website listed above. I am glad to see that things are going well for you and the new business sounds particularly interesting. Our days at King's seem a long while ago now. Hope you are well, Kevin.
