Does anyone know anything about this family?

A little more information:- One of the sons of Chaim Yitkok SALAVACCHICK
was Moishe of Kovno & Vilna 1870-1956. >>

That would be the SOLOVEICHIK Lithuanian rabbinical family.

One Moshe, according to the Encyclopedia Judaica, lived 1876 to 1941, and
was the son of Hayim (Brisker) 1853-1918.

You will find a list and family chart in the EJ.

Joseph Dov was known as Joseph Baer of Volozhin (1820-1892).

The family is well documented, and you should be able to find references
easily in libraries, Talmudic academies, and perhaps find a member of the
family locally.
