About Ita Langsam

One of the major problems that has persisted with this profile, is how Ita was related to the Weisblum line. A few merges have caused this to be problematic. Through research it seems that Ita was a niece of the Elimelech of Lizhensk and that her mother would have been a sister to Elimelech. Somewhere in the merging process, Ita became her own mother and then a sister to Elimelech.

Father - Eliezer Lipman 1690 - 17xx

Son - Elimelech 1717 - 1786 - that makes father at age 26 to 27, reasonable for a man, taking an avg of 25 yrs from birth to start bearing children

Son - Zusha 1718/1720 - 1800 - makes father 28 to 30

Pesach - 1748 with his first children starting from 1765 , age 17, and ending in the 1780's or 1790's, his age near his 40's.

If his wife Ita, was a sister of Elimelech, and born in at least the 1720's, she would have had to been in her 40's/50's to start bearing children in 1765 and would have been doing so into her 80's.

This makes it likely she is not a sister of Elimelech, but actually a niece of Elimelech and a granddaughter of Eliezer.
