Selli & Ida (Zeilberger) Gutmann

Selli Gutmann was a first cousin of my Oma Julchen. Like Oma Julchen they were from Niederwerrn, Germany Selli & Ida emigrated to Cincinnat, OH in 1940 with their son Max. Their other son, Bernie, was already in Cincinnati, and their daughter, Ilse, would arrive in 1944. Selli and Oma Julchen had an uncle, Sam Gutmann who had settled in Cincinnati many years before. From my mother's story: An uncle of my mother visited her family every year from the United States. So uncle Sam Gutmann and his wife Hatty wanted to be at the wedding (1921) before going back to Cincinnati. Selli's grandson, Jay Gutmann, has been very helpful to me in making this family site.
