I wonder if someone here might be able to provide me with suggestions regarding how to proceed. I am researching my great grandmother, Sarah Esther Katzenelenbogen, born in Lowicz, Poland, late 1800s, died Sochaczew, Poland @1928. Is there any basis for making a guess as to how she might connect to the overall Katzenelenbogen tree? I have scanned "The Unbroken Chain" in vain and do not obvious connect to anyone on Geni. Searches on JewishGen do turn up other Katzenelenbogens in Lowicz and Sochaczew.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Gary,
I have an ancestor called Sarah Katzenelenbogen
she married to Mojshe LERICH (or LERECH-LEVY)
I don't know more about about her
but I know she was born in Halych, Ivano-Frankivs'ka oblast, Ukraine.
Maybe we have a commun link

I found Sarah in jri-poland as Szerky KATZENEL married to Moise LERCH
In the book you have mentionned, my Sarah is not in the Chain !

Bye bye

Hi, Stéphane,

Thanks for your reply. I should have mentioned that Sarah married my great grandfather, Meyer Wolf Swiatlowski in Sochaczew @1898-1899, so doesn't sound like the same Sarah. But thanks for the reminder to search on Polish spellings as well.
