I have some distant Friedman relatives who origionated from the
area of Panevezys and emigrated to Palestine around 1900. Not all
went to Palestine, now Israel. I have a Morris Friedman (aka Saidel)
who came to the US in 1912. My Friedmans are closely related to
Saidels as a Saidel was brought up by his Friedman relatives.
The Israel branch included the family of Hersh & Aya Friedman. They
had several children including a Rabbi Shmuel Friedman. Shmuel is a
distant 1st cousin of my grandfather, Dr. Nathan Steinberg. From an
old photograph I have the following posing together: Hersh & Aya
Friedman, Bizalel Friedman (Brother of Hersh) married to Dvora or Kreina.
Other relatives were Yakov & Sheina Haitovich (S. Africa branch),
Chaja Yakinson and his wife Mirium with little girl Rivka, baby
Chiam Noah & son Naftali. Avraham & Mirium Perlstein (S. Africa branch).
I hope the above info is of help to you.
