About Our Family Research

Hello again! I can't seem to access my original home page any longer but it is still out there!

Thanks to Cousin Robert Landau of New Jersey, our Feil/Fajl family is "done". My other interests are Eisenberg (originally from Warszawa), Schaffer and Siegel of Chicago (both from Romania), Hendel from Makow and Nowadworski from Serock, Poland, and Bochenek from Czestochowa, Poland.

My husband's family lines are Karp, Kirzner, Berman, Wolfberg/Wolberg, Getz, Lasser, Shapiro, Widzer from the Altoona/Hollidaysburg area of Pennsylvania (originally from Lithuania). The Lasser family includes Glasser and Lesser in South Africa, Duluth, Minnesota, Baltimore, Maryland, and New York.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Family Trees (viewing trees requires 4.0 or later browser)
  • The Kirsner family (78 KB)
    Zundel Joseph Kirsner married my husband's great-grandmother Hodah Wolfberg. The oldest information is thanks to our cousin Karen Kirshner.
  • The Eisenberg Family of Kaluszyn and Warsawa (37 KB)
    The Eisenbergs are my father's paternal family. One brother moved to Argentina while the remaining family immigrated to the US before WWII. Some Eisenbergs were Holocaust Kedoshim but we only have a few records.
  • The Karp Family of Jasielnica, Österreich/Austria (50 KB)
    Family legend says that the Karps came from the same town as their in-laws, the Herzog family. This is another maternal line for my husband.
  • The Fajl or Feil Family of Hrubieszow, Poland (62 KB)
    This is my father's maternal line (also see the Bochenek tree) - much of which was researched by our cousin Robert Landau. The tree includes Holocaust Kedoshim -- at least one branch survived the War in Europe and relocated to Paris.
  • The Bochenek Family of Czestochowa (143 KB)
    The Bochenek family is one of my father's maternal lines. The information, not yet complete, was assembled from CRARG, JewishGen and records.
  • The Segal Family of Romania (44 KB)
    We have very little information about this family. Raizel/Rose Segal married my maternal great-grandfather Label/Louis Schaffer.
  • The Schaffer Family of Romania (40 KB)
    The Schaffer family is one of my mother's paternal lines.
  • The Novadvorski Family of Makow Mazowiecki, Poland (44 KB)
    The Novadvorski line is one of my mother's maternal lines (her great-grandmother Dina Ruchel Hendel married Menachem Mendel Novadvorski.) This family was decimated by the Nazis.
  • The Glasser/Lasser/Lesser family of Lithuania (207 KB)
    Chaim [Glezer] had seven children, including six sons who variously used Glasser, Lassar/Lasser, and Leser/Lesser as their surnames. The family immigrated to South Africa, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Maryland and New York. This is my husband's paternal line.
  • The Shapiro Family of Lithuania (111 KB)
    Annie Shapiro married Oscar Lasser, my husband's grandfather, in Lithuania.
  • The Wolfberg Family of Luoke/Luknik, Lithuania (643 KB)
    The Wolfberg family, one of my husband's maternal lines, is the biggest tree that I have, thanks to our cousin Sue Wolberg Weiler. At least 3 generations of the family immigrated to the US between 1883 and 1910.
