Hi,
My name is zwi Gershon Weinberg. My mother's father name was Gershon Grosskopf. He was a teacher and they lived in Viznitz and Tchernovitz (Bukovina). He perished in the holocost around 1941/2. We have no photo of him. I wonder if there was any relationship to your family and if somebody had a photo.
Sincerely,
Zwi Weinberg, Israel.

I am sorry, but I don't have any photos of a Gershon Grosskopf. I am searching for Grosskopf members from the Brody - Zloczow area. But nobody knows, maybe there is a link between these families. The photos in my family-album show two Grosskopfs: my father of blessed memory, and his half-brother Shimon who also lives in Israel. Their father was Josef Grosskopf from Zloczow (Solochiv now Ukraine, Bukowina is not far away!!!)
All the best
Are you on facebook, too? I tried to contact a Zwi G. Weinberg, but the message will not leave ....

Dear Susan,
Thank you very much. I appreciate your answer. It seems you belong to a different Grosskopf. I wish I could find a photo of Gershon Groskopf who perished in the holocost.
I have no facebook, only as an artist. I even don't remember the web site address.
Anyway, I wish you and your family Shana Tova!
Regards,
Zwika Weinberg, israel.

Dear Zwi,
gam lecha shana towa.
Sorry, that I couldn't help you. You perhaps will find more
contacts in JewishGen. May be there are Yiskor books for your shtetl in which are photos of people.

Take care and kol tow.

My grandfather was called Joseph Grosskopf. He was one of a large family, children of Asher Zelig Grosskopf, a first generation immigrant who moved to Manchester, United Kingdom. He was born in the 1910s or so, so would have not been the Joseph Grosskopf you are looking for - perhaps a nephew? Names tend to be recycled in the family... I understand (like a few other Manchester families) he came from 'Brod' ('Brody')?

Hi Shaya,
I am in touch with Refoel Grosskopf from London. He is your cousin? uncle? And with Dov Vainstein in Israel. I am very sure, that there is a family link somewhere in the 1840ies from the region Brody-Sassow-Zloczow. But the only garantee is to make an Y-DNA-test. I made the test for my father Mordechai Yehuda Grosskopf Z.L. Where are you living? In GB too? I was a volunteer in the Brody-project and transcribed lists from Brody. I found several Grosskopf members. Tell me more
Best regards
Susan

Hi.

I don't know a Refoel Grosskopf in London, but he is probably one of my 3rd or 4th cousins. My brother Rafi from Manchester wasn't named after anyone in particular.

To my knowledge, all UK Grosskopfs are descended from my great grandfather, Asher Zelig o's. He is buried in Blackley in Manchester. He had 8 children, including my grandfather.

My father tells me we were originally Sassover Chassidim.

By the way, have did you know that one of Lenin's ancestors was called Anna Groschopf http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blank_family - any relation?

Hi,

from Refoel (Raphael) Grosskopf in London, too I know the tree of the descendants of Asher Selig. I even got photos of his tombstone. Sassov seems to be the clue. My grandfather, too had relatives there. But his family branch (I presume his father) moved from Sassov to Zloczow while Ascher Zelig emigrated to UK.
I would prefer to communicate with you directly per email not over ancestry.com. My email-address: sue.jk@online.de
I am on facebook and Geni, too.
Is Shaya a nickname?
