Kalman Asriel Goldberg married Arlene Srulovitz: Are we connected?

In my last post I wrote about Jeanette Weiss who married Emanuel Goldberg. You can read about them here  While researching them I made an interesting discovery connecting them back to my Srulowitz/Srulovitz or Strulowitz family.

In 1932, Jean and Manny had a son, Kalman Asrial born January 27th, Chicago, Ill.

For some time now I have been trying to locate my Srulowitz family that had left New York for Chicago. My great grandmother was a woman named Rebecca Srulowitz and while we know her parents names were Samuel Strulowitz and Minnie Cohen that is really all we knew with the exception that Rebecca’s extended family had located in Chicago. In addition she had a sister named Minnie who had a duaghter named Mollie, known as red head Mollie.

I have a number of Strulowitz connected DNA cousins  4 – 8 generations back and nothing to connected our family with these matches, that is until now.

Before I go further let me explain my connection to Jean Weiss. She is the niece of the wife of my 2nd great uncle; Phillip Hyam’s (Hyamovitch). Phillip’s father was Marks Hyamovitch (England branch) brother to my great grandfather Samuel Haimowitz (New York branch) The connection is distant but with the discovery of Kalman and then to his wife but I have connected these two families through marriage and linked them as our Srulowitz family.

Kalman Asriel Goldberg married Arlene Srulowitz on October 24, 1954 in Chicago, Ill. Arlene was born June 5, 1934. That was an interesting discovery for me and I quickly went to work trying to discover who Arlene was.

Arlene was the daughter of Herman Srulovitz b. May 3, 1913, Brooklyn, N.Y. son of Isadore Srulovitz b. 1884 Hungary- d. 1933 Chicago and Esther Altberger b. 1891 Hungary – died 1966 Chicago.

I have been sitting on 3 DNA connections to the family of Isadore and Esther for a few years now. I have been communication with the granddaughter of Arlene in both group emails with the England Hyamovitch family and privately the last view months unaware that we circle back around and connect.

I have a task in front of me to try and discover just how Isadore and Rebecca are connected. I have nothing proven yet.  What I am going to try to prove is were

Could Isadore born 1884, father Samuel M. and Rebecca born 1880, father Samuel be brother and sister?
