Wondering if anyone could possibly provide me with any details on our great great grandmother. She married a Flamm, they lived in Belz, She was a Heshel and a descndant from the Besht.

Kind regards to dear friends and family.

Private User Hi Zev, Have you tried Rav Shlomo Flam ?

Thank yuu for your kind response, I have asked him however he does not know. In fact our branch of the family was unknown to most Flamm's. What is interesting is that we are not such distant relatives only second cousins twice removed.

Perhaps I can find you listed in Neil Rosenstein's Unbroken Chain. Are you saying her last name is Heschel?

Hi thank you for the offer.

My great great granfathers name was Sholom Flamm - he lived in belz. He married a Heschel girl - she was a descendant from the Aper Rov.

What is the unbroken chain about?

Best regards

Hi Zev,

I will see if there is any information on her name. The Flamm, Heschel & Rubin family is well represented in the book. But, as you say, women's family information is often not recorded.

"The Unbroken Chain", by Dr. Neil Rosenstein: Biographical sketches and genealogy of illustrious Jewish families from the 15th-20th Century. - 2 volumes, 1300 pages.
