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.

Subject: Tracing my father's roots
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

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

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.

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?

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.

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
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
