LAVSKI Family from Lomza Poland

There are records of the LAVSKI/LAWSKI family in north eastern Poland since the latter part of the 18th century. It is quite possible that the name came from their previous residence in the village of Lavsk/Lawsk (53.5419N 22.6188E, about 22 miles NNE of Lomza).

An early document relating to the LAVSKI family is a petition concerning the cemetery and the synagogue in Lomza 1854-1858. It is signed by over 150 Jews of Lomza, including Leijba Lawski. (See left side, 2nd column, 17th signature down, just above the crease.) The entire document can be found at the Polska.pl web site.

LAVSKI descendants live in the United States, Israel and perhaps Argentina. Some in the US have changed their names to Libby, Lofsky and Smith. In Israel they are Lavsky.
