Research Notes

  1. Searching for Common Ancestor
Although their father is not known, Ralph Lichtman (born about 1866 possibly in Poland, died 5 Aug 1947 in Buffalo, Erie, New York, United States) and Samuel Lichtman (born about 1866 possibly in Poland, died between 1925 and 1930 probably in Buffalo, Erie, New York, United States) are believed to be brothers and there may have been more siblings who also came to Buffalo. There is an auDNA match between one of Ralph's descendants and Perri Guest-Rappel. Perri's earliest known ancestor is Bernat Lichtman (probably born between1835 and 1852, in Hungary. If he came to the United States (which is not known), he may have died in 1924 in Bronx, Bronx, New York United States. The Bernat Leichtman who died in 1894 in Budapest, Hungary has been determined to be a different person.
