My great-grandfather, Aron Tzadok (Charles) Engelman (perhaps: 1845-1895) was born in Bialystok, Poland, married Mindel Kucherovsky ~1870 in Bialystok. They had 5 children that I’m certain of who immigrated to the USA, and (mostly settled in Pennsylvania, USA): Freda Riva, Harry (Zvi Hersh), Samuel, Max, and Abraham.
I’d like to know whether a Yossel Engelman of Bialystok is also a son of Aron Tzadok and Mindel. I found a record at jri-poland.org showing Yossel, was the son of Aron, and Yossel’s name is listed in the Bialystok 1912 Voter List (ref BIAa5775).
*** Can someone help me find a document that more definitely links this Yossel Engelman to MY great-grandfather Aron Tzadok Engelman? ***
Additional info on Yossel is: he may have marreid Fajga Wegmeister; they may have had several children; and Fajga and her children may have perished in the Shoah around 1942, according to this Yad Vashem testimony submitted by her nephew at https://yvng.yadvashem.org/index.html?language=en&s_lastName=Engelman&s_firstName=&s_place=Bialystok&s_dateOfBirth=&cluster=true.
If one of you ancestry volunteers can read Hebrew, could you tell me whether this testimony (at the Yad Vashem website listed above) discusses how many children Yossel and Fajga had, their names, and which died in the Shoah?
Most importantly, is there any documentation/discussion of Yossel’s connection to my great-grandfather Aron Tzadok Engelman?
Thank you very much.
