Re: Jewish Gottesman's from Hungary to Ohio

I am working on the Gottesman part of my family. I had my grandmother Lillian Gottesman marry Ernest Weiss. Lived in Ohio after arriving in USA. Lils brother Max married Mary Weiss, Ernies sister. So we had brother and sister Weiss marry brother and sister Gottesman. I believe lil and Max's parents were Adolf and Ethel. I am on the Weiss side but my dads first cousins are Ed and Len Gottesman. All lived in Ohio at some point. I cannot find any record from Ellis Island, but know that Lillian (my grandmother) spoke Hungarian and they arrived here married. Akron, Cleveland, Youngstown are the towns where they lived.

Any connection out there? Most Jewish Gottesmans seem to be from Austria. Mine lived in some part of Budapest before coming to the US.

Thanks. Good Luck.
