My grandfather was Michael Flaxman, his parents were David Flaxman and Bessie Zinsolovsky (aka Sandofsky), they apparently came to the United States prior to 1896, these are my great grandparents. I was told that they came from Russia, but may also be Germany? or Poland? Those were the names on my Grandfathers death certificate.The family resided in Chicago in the 1890's. My grandfather was born in 1896, some of his siblings names are James, Irene, Joe, Esther(Ester?) and Belle(Bella?) Any information would be greatly appeciated.
