My Guberman/Huberman Family Story.
My name is Leslie Oberman the great grandson of Srul
Guberman/Huberman and Batya/Basha
Until two years ago I
knew of two of my great-grandfathers as Israel Oberman(
see website http://www.oberman.org ) and
Abraham David Bucshester (see website http://www.bucshester.org).
For thirty years I
researched the Oberman family name, I visited the Ukraine, I hired a researcher in Kiev. He could not find any Israel Obermans. A chance remark by a cousin of mine that one of
her brothers had been supported financially through his university course by a
family in America who stated that they were members of the family led me to
search for the Krasne family who were descendants of
Bella and Anna/Hana Guberman,
who came from Bogopol (Now Pervomaysk) in the
Ukraine. When I went back to the research carried by the researcher in Kiev (see http://www.kazez.com/~dan/guberman-lis.html)
I found my GGF as Srul Guberman
the son of Ios Gersh Guberman the son of Itsko Iosev Guberman. It would appear
that Bella and Anna were sisters of my GGF Srul (Israel). Israel married Batya/Basha Goldner and they had
two children Michael (my GF) and Esther. Israel died and Batya
married again to a Nahum Kalisker, who already had three children from his
late wife, also named Batya. With Nahum, Batya had a further two children, Zelik
and Raisel. Michael married Sarah Leah Bucshester, Esther married Arye
Levin, Zelik married Shaina
Yaffa Rubenstein, Raisel married Yaakov Rubenstein, Israel
married Rosa Feigensen, then Manya
Feldman, Blima married Michael Greenberg, Miriam
married Shachna Salomon.
Batya and Nahum were among the founders of Rosh Pina in the Upper Galilee in Israel. My previous research had
concentrated on Oberman families around the world now
I am now researching the Guberman families.
