Rabbi Binyamin Eliezer Ungar-Auerbach is the oldest relative I can trace up
my direct male line. All I know was that he lived in Krakow and was the
son-in-law of the Rosh Beis Din of Krakow, Rabbi Ya'akov HaLevi (formerly of
Wolbrom). R' Ya'akov passed away on 10 October 1828.

As a member of the Galicia Discussion Group, I noticed the name
AUERBACH amongst the names you are researching. Could you please
give me more information on your AUERBACH family?
