"Yalkut Einot Noam"

The source of the family tree chart on the media tab as well as Elazar and Eliezer Lipa's profiles is a booklet (in Hebrew) called "Yalkut Einot Noam". It is updated from time to time by a group of descendants of Reb Elimilech. You can Google for it, they even have a Facebook page.

According to the above mentioned booklet, the source of the Name Weisblum is from the white flowers (some says Lilies) that were embroidered on the Reb's white suit.
Reb Elimilech didn't use this name, it was just a nickname, but some of his descendants adopted this name after his death. (ZB)



• Elimelech of Lizhensk father's name was Eliezer Lipman, not Weisblum.

• The Name Weisblum aparently was taken from his wife Mirl Weisblum. It seems that in those days it was hard to get a marriage licenses so children were born and named after the mother--- in this case Weisblum (?)

• Nevertheless, in some sources the brothers Elimelech of Lizhensk and Zucha of Anipoli are still called after the Father Eliezer LIpman.

• What is even more confusing is why Eliezer Lipman's father is also given the name Weisblum

a clear Mistake, no?

• It is understandable to some extent if the sons wore the name of their Mother Weisblum, but as for Eliezer, and especially his Father and Grand father should not the name obviously be Lipman?

Chaya Sarah Hofstein, she only had one husband. Remove R Shmuel Zanvil Beer? Maybe it is supposed to be Shmuel Zanvil Bindiger who married a first cousin?
AFAIK, Avaraham Weissblum is not a son of Noam Elimelech.

"Menachem Yissucher Weissblum's" name was 
מנחם יששכר מענדל בער ווייסבלום 
and he was a son of Elazar. (Wife Sheindl)
Elimilech from Rimanov (or Rymanow) was the son of Eliezer-Lipa, his wife was Malka, the daughter of Elazar. (they where cousins
What was Reb Elimelechs mother name was? Common thought has it as Mirish/Mirel however some claim that her name was Gitel.
Re the name of his second wife and did she have any children and who are they. On Geni we have Gitel as a second wife, is the name verified?
