My family was from Comanesti and Botosani. My grandfather was Saul Riczker. He had a son Joseph and a son Max and a daughter Rebecca. They all moved to France. Then my father was born there. His name was Jacques Riczker. I live in the US. My name is Renee Riczker.
Have you heard of any of my relatives?
Unfortunately, we do not have information about your grandfather's name, but since the name Riczker is very uncommon and and your grandfather's origin is from the area close to ours, it is likely that there are family connections.
The name of my great grandfather was Abraham and his wife, Sarah. They had three sons Leib, Isaac and Sammy and two daughters Feige and Leah. My grandfather was Leib.
My sister's name is Renee Riczker!
I hope that we'll be able to find the connection.
Hello, my sister Béatrice sent me the link of the discussion.
It sems, Joseph is my grand father.
This link is a small pdf about the family in France, done from my half brother Jean-Paul. There he explains (shortly) the switch to the name Ricker too.
Now I live in Germany, my sister in France (south), my other relatives near Paris and at the Bretagne (west coast).
Nice greetings from ol' europe
