The Mirer, Barshop, Witten and Woichansky Family
I am trying to trace the relatives of Chaia/Annie MIRER (nee VOICHANSKY
Chaia was born in Gorodok (part of the Vitebsk gubernia district), Belarus
in 1881. Her parents were Shlomo and Hava Voichansky >from Gorodok. She
immigrated to the USA in 1903. Annie married Isaac Mirer in 1906 in New
She lived in New York until she passed in 1968. Annie's daughter, Ruth
BARSHOP (nee Mirer), was born in 1919 and lives in New York. Annie also had
relatives, first cousins who lived in Boston and may be some other parts of
the USA and/or Canada.
One of her older brothers was Max Woichansky, who changed his name to
WITTEN. He came to the US (NY area) and had two children, Evelyn and
Evelyn was married to David FOX, who was killed in an accident. She may
have remarried. She had 3 children - Steven, Richard, and Marjorie.
Thank you very much
