Joanie's Family HistoryUpdated August 13, 2001
|I am researching the following families from the following areas:|
SIEGEL (SEGALOWITZ) - Minsk, Russia: My paternal GGF was Barnet (Berl) (b. 5/15/1874).He had a brother Solomon.We know nothing about the Segalowitz family: what happened to Solomon, were there other siblings, who were their parents?
SLAYK (SLOTZKIN) also from Russia.My paternal GGM was Anna (m. Barnet) (b. 4/30/1873).Her parents were Solomon Slotzkin and Roshe COHEN.My paternal GGPs had six children: Louis, Joseph (my GF), Bessie, Elias, Samuel and Fanny.We have no information about the Slayk/Slotkin family.Did Anna have siblings?What happened to all of them?
HECKER and KUGLER- Kolmea, Austria.My paternal GGF was Max Hecker (b 12/14/1878), his parents were Jacob Hecker and Rachel (Toba) Lattner, his sister was Ruth.My paternal GGM was Sarah Kugler (b abt. 1875).Her parents were Fannie and Nathan Kugler.Her brothers were Joseph and Sigmund.Max and Sarah had 5 children: Gertrude (my GM), Ruth, Teresa, Jack and Lillian.What happened to Joseph and Sigmund?Who were the Heckers and the Lattners?
MIRSKY (MIRSKA) from Podbrudzie, Poland.My maternal GGGF was Lebe Mirska and he was married to Raisel Henoch.One of their nine children was Morris, my GGF (b. April 1882 in Russia).Their other children were: Shmuel, Avram, Nathan, Yosef, Chia Belle, Sarah, Elka, Rechel.We don't know what happened to most of these siblings and their families
RINIK (from Poland).My maternal GGGF was Eli Rinik.He had 7 children: Jennie (my GGM)(b. 1886 in Wilenska Poland), Yetta, Sonya, Nechel, "Rabbi" and two daughters whose names are unknown. My GGM married Morris Mirsky.What happened to the Riniks?We only know about Yetta, Jennie and the two daughters (but not their names!)
BALBES (BALBIRSKI, BALBESKI, BALBIRSKA)- thanks to the hard work of my third cousin, Lisa, this side goes back to my maternal GGGGF!Zelman BALBIRSKI was b. 1801 in Lodz, a province of Kalish.My GGM was Rose Balbeski.She was born in 1887 in London, daughter of Solomon Balbes/ Balberski and Hannah FALDET.Solomon and Hannah had 7 children: Solly, Cecil (Abe), Rose, Jessie, Murray (Morris/Maurice), Polly and Anne.
NOVICK/ NORWICK: My GGGP were Hyman and Bluma Norwick (both b. Russia, m. in England).They had 4 children: Louis (my GGF), Max, Reina and Anna.Louis m. Rose Balbeski in the USA.He changed his name to Novick when he emigrated.They had 5 children.Does anyone know anything about the Norwicks from Russia?
