Hello,
My father Julius Thumim-Riedler was born in Vienna, Austria in 1914. His father's name was Max Thumim and his mother's Rosa Riedler. The family moved to Lvov when his mother died and my grandfather re-married. His new wife was Malka Kauf.
They emigrated to Argentina in 1924 and he remembered his grandfather and one of his father's sisters remained in Lvov. I would like to know if there are any Thumims in Lvov. I have the feeling the family was originally from there.
Thank you!
Graciela Grinbank (nee Thumim)

Subject: Tracing my father's roots

Hi,
My father, John Psuj, came to the UK as a displaced person after the war in about 1946/1947. He was from Lvov and was born on 1st March 1916. I think his mother was called Maria and he had a twin sister and brother named Stefan and Stefanie, I believe. I think his father was a coach maker. I don't know anything about my father's family apart from these details. I would love to be able to trace my roots and one day travel to that part of the world.
Can anyone advise me how to go about finding more information - unfortunately I don't speak Polish.
Thankyou,
Jeanette James

Subject: Weitzners of Lemberg/Lvov

Looking for information about my grandfather Rubin Weitzner and his brother Charles. We originally heard that they came to America in 1892 when Rubin was 8 yrs and Charles was 14 yrs. We have since heard that this information was not exactly right. They might have been a little older and they might not have traveled together. We think that they came before computerized Ellis Island records (pre 1892). They both settled in the NY/NJ area. Charles married Yetta Upin and my grandfather married Pauli Schein/Pauline Schoen. We always believed her name was Pauline Schoen but have found information that her name might have been Pauli Schein. Her family is believed to have come from Lvov also but don't know if she was born in Lvov or America. I have recently been contacted by a granddaughter of Charles that I never met (maybe when we were very young) so I've been able to fill in some small gaps but don't know the names of our family members that might have remained in Lvov. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
My name is now John Taras but I was born Evan Lucak in 1957. I believe my Father Wasyl Lucak was born around 1924 in Lvov. He had a brother Iwan who I was named after and two sisters. Anna and I think Nasturnia. My Grandfathers name I think was Mykyta Lucak. I have a letter to my father from my Uncle Iwan dated January 1965. At this time he was working in Solotwyne. My father Wasyl died on November 5th 1990 in Preston Lancashire. I would dearly like to make contact with my Cousins wherever they are. I know from the letter that my Uncle and both Aunts had children.

Any help you can give me would be great.
Kind regards

Subject: Hello Lemberg

Like many of you my family came from Lemberg (Lvov). My grandmother Sophia Martini was born in 1894 somewhere in or near Lvov to Leo Martini and Roselia Lozinska. He was a tailor, born in 1862 to parents Joseph and Sophia Martini. Leo and Rose lived in Stryji, just south of Lvov. He died in 1897.
Rose was born in the same area in 1871 to parents Nicholi Lozinska and Yula Korchinska. They died when she was a child. Rose had three brothers, Bisho, Yashow and Useow. One hung himself and another died in war. Rose left the area between 1901 and 1903. Daughter Sophia was left in a convent in Lvov until Rose returned in 1909 to bring her to the United States.
In 1975 my mother and I visited Lvov and Stryji. We visited an address on Karakrina Street where we believe they lived. Other than that I know little. Do any of these names or places ring a bell with anyone?

My father lived in a small town that I can't find and it exists/existed near Lvov. It's called something like LELAPULYA, LILIPUYA. I've searched high and low and just can't find it. Any suggestions? Does it sound familiar? Any help would be soooooo appreciated.

Hello - It is a pleasure to see so much history of our family roots on-line. My family has a deep history in Lviv and I certainly hope to travel back some day to see it all for myself. Certainly, if any groups are looking for an unusual performance by a man who carries the name of the city, it would be my honor to come and do so for the citizens of my ancestral home. Thank you for all the hard work and energy that was obviously put into this web effort.

Subject: Family from Mosty Wielkie

Hello, I just found this site and was thrilled. My Grandfather was born in Mosty Wielkie in 1892 and came to the US in 1907. His last name was Sliwinski, and he said his mothers maiden name was Bandill. He had a older brother Peter, and older sisters who married men with the surnames of Scheremeta and Kmyta. I do not know if there is any family still there.
I would love to find out more about the town- they lived on a farm, and his father was sort of the town official.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

i am looking for a survivor by the name of Jolenka from Lvov. She was born probably around 1938-1940. Her last name was Knobel. My father was taken to the Russian army at the time and she was left with her mother. My father had a grocery store in Lvov prior to the war. After the war when my father returned to Lvov he was told by the janitor of the building where he lived that his wife had given her away to a family.
Any information would be very greatly appreciated.
