If this conjunction of family names rings a bell, we are undoubtedly related. Zuckermans and Ungerlanders were in NYC, the others were in Philadelphia, in period 1900- thirties. My branch of Berkowitz went to the midwest.

It looks like we are not related in the obvious way. My grandfather was from Hungary and the area called Galszecs in Zemplen (a kind of county) seems to have been infested with Berkowitz's. The Zuckerman Imentioned was his sister's married name.

(I was only able to see 1 line of your message.)
The family names listed were the married names for sisters of my Grandfather, Nate Berkowitz. Zuckerman and Ungerlander were in New York. The other two in Philadelphia as was his brother Samuel Berkowitz. My grandfather lived in Milwaukee, Sheboygan, TerreHaute and finally, Mattoon, Illinois after 1906.

I have a Rebecca Berkowitz (b. maybe 1860s?) in my family who married a Greenberg. She lived in NYC circa 1935.

Does this sound like any relation?

Apparently no connection. Our Berkowitz/Greenberg was resident in Philadelphia from 1890s marriage on till 40s(?).
Thanks for the response.
