I thank members of the Czestochowa-Radomsko Area Research Group (www.crarg.org) for helping me to discover many missing branches of my family tree.


Dear cousins,

Welcome to our family web page. My great great grandfather was Berek Talman and his mother was named Sura Laja Kifer. Sura Laja's first husband (Mordka Talman) died on 16 March 1841, and then she married Josef Szaja Wajshaus.

This web page is about Sura Laja Kifer, her brothers and sisters, and their descendants.

I hope that you can find your family below. Here are the first 3 generations of our family tree:

One of our oldest family documents shows several of our family surnames in one place. It is the death certificate for Ruchma Talman (child of Sura Laja Kifer and Berek Talman). Here is a translation:

It happened in the city of Plawno on the 4th of March 1845 at 8am. There appeared Szaja Wejschaus, age 42, worker, and Henryk Zygielman, age 50, both living in Plawno, and stated that on the 3rd of March 1845 at 4 pm Ruchma Taelman died, age 5, the daughter of Mortka (already deceased) and Sura Laja (re-married to Wejschaus), living in Plawno. After making sure of death of Ruchma Taelman, this certificate was read and signed by those present, of which first [Wejschaus] was stepfather and second [Zygielman] was friend of deceased.

First, here is information on the Kifer-Talman branch of our family tree.

Our Kifer-Talman branch begins with Sura Laja Kifer and Mordka Talman, and their son Berek Talman. Berek married Malka Jurkiewicz in 1855. We have photographs (below) of three of their children: Anna T. Lux, Jankiel (with a beard), and my great grandfather Emanuel (with a tie). Other family photographs are in the "Photographs" portion of this web site.

Anna Telman Lux:

Jankiel Telman:

Emanuel Talman:

Our Kifer family was from Poland—in particular, a town by the name of Plawno (pronounced pwahv-noe). Members of the family also lived in the nearby town of Radomsko (then called Noworadomsk.) The name Talman was also spelled Taelman (early in the 1800s) and Telman (in Poland in the 1900s). The name Wajshaus was spelled many different ways in Poland.

Up until the 1830s, our Kifer family lived in the little town of Kruszyna. My great great great grandmother, Anna or Hinda Kifer Englender, was born in Kruszyna in 1825. Click here for her birth certificate. Here is a translation:

It happened on 25 August 1825 at 8am in front of me, Jan Michalski, the vice clerk of the Office of Civil Status in the commune of Kruszyna, county and district of Wielun, province of Kalisz. There arrived the 30-year-old Jew Salamon Kifer residing in the village of Kruszyna and in the presence of the Jewish witnesses 46-year-old Dawid Rafen and 59-year-old Szymon Krakowski he presented to us a baby girl born yesterday at 1pm in a place of his residence under the number of 76 from his 30-year-old wife Sprince nee Berek who was named Anna.
This document has been read to those present and witnesses and signed.

Near the top of our Kifer-Talman branch is Berek Talman. He married Malka Jurkiewicz (yoor-kyeh-vitch) on 25 November 1855, in the town of Przedbórz, Poland. (Malka Jurkiewicz was the daughter of Lewek Jurkiewicz and Laja Lewkowicz.) The first child of Berek Talman and Malka Jurkiewicz was born in 1856, in Plawno.

In about 1890, part of the Talman family moved from Plawno to the nearby town of Radomsko, which had quite a large Jewish population. It was here that first cousins Harry Talman (my grandfather) and Leo Talman and Pinhas Ofman and Leah Telman were born. Leo, son of Abram, was born in 1887. Harry, son of Emanuel, was born in 1889. Emanuel Talman (my great grandfather) came to the USA (Chicago) in September of 1902. Emanuel, known to Leo's family as "Uncle Talman," lived near Leo on and off in the 1920s.

Hana Talman, aunt of Harry Talman and Leo Talman, married Naftul (Nathan) Luks. In 1906, they came to Kansas City, Missouri and changed their name to Lux. Leo Talman, and his sister Fannie, came to Kansas City just one year later, in 1907.

Leo and Fannie Talman's father, Abram Talman, moved to the town of Zgierz after their mother died, around 1893. In Zgierz, Abram married Cerka Zelmanowicz on 22 April 1898, and they had eight children.

It was in Radomsko, Poland that Emanuel Talman's sister Gitla married Chaim Ofman, on 7 August 1890. Gitla and Chaim had nine children, many of whom were taken by the Nazis in October of 1942, very likely to Treblinka. One of Gitla Talman and Chaim Ofman's children, Abraham Ofman, moved to the USA (Kansas City, MO) in 1939.

Emanuel Talman's brother Jankiel (Yaakov) married Frimet on 30 May 1888. They had eight children, all born in Radomsko. Their son Urin (born in Radomsko in 1889) had several children, including Dyna Ruchla, who remained in Poland during World War II. Later, she used the name Roza (with a dot on the o; pronounced "Ruja"). Her story is told in Polish documents:

Roza hidden during the war, in Warsaw: page one, page two
Roza registered as a survivor after the war

The father of Hana, Ruchla, Abram, Jankiel, Emanuel, and Gitla was Berek Talman. Berek was born in 1835, in Plawno. Reaching back even farther, Berek's father was Mortka Talman. Mortka died in 1841.

Between 1900 and 1950, the Talman families moved to the United States, Canada, and Israel. Perhaps you can help to find our missing Talman and Ofman cousins:

Talman (Telman) cousins--the branch of Jankiel

Ofman cousins--the branch of Gitla (Telman) Ofman

As mentioned above, Mordka Talman died on 16 March 1841. Mordka's young widow, Sura Laja Kifer, age 25, then married Josef Szaja Wajshaus. One of their children, Izrael Salomon Wajshaus, was born in Plawno on 7 Februry 1850 (photo below). Izrael's son Abram was born on 8 September 1899. We surmise that it is around 1900 that the family moved south, to the town of Bedzin.

Izrael Salomon Wajshaus:

The last child of Sura Laja Kifer and Josef Szaja Wajshaus was Ryfka Ruchla Wajshaus. She married Naftuli Wajsberg in Plawno on 30 March 1877. Their son Josek Szaja Wajsberg was born on 2 November 1882.

We are just now learning about the Kifer-Wajshaus and Kifer-Wajsberg branches of our family tree. I will soon be adding more information to this web site.
