Hi everyone! I'm hoping to find additional information about my
grandfather's family >from the Minsk area, as I have very incomplete (and
sometimes contradictory) family notes.
=20
Great grandfather Morris Murowchick (Murowtchik/Murawczyk/Murawzik) was
born ca. 1870 or so in David-Horodok. I'm not sure of Morris' Hebrew name,=
but it was perhaps Moische or Abram. He was a joiner/carpenter. He married=
Sarah (Sura, Sore) Kunek (Konik, Kolnik) about 1891 (she was born ca. 1870=
in Kozhan-Gorodok).
=20
At some point, they moved to Luninyets, Brest, Belarus, where all of their=
children were born: Aisik ("Ike") Murawczyk (born 17 Nov 1893?); Abram
Mendel ("Max") Murawczyk (my grandfather), born 27 May 1894 (?), Jankel
(Jack, Jacob) Murawczyk, born 10 Apr 1896; Soscha (Shirley Anna), born ca.=
1902, Dora, born ca. 1903; and Mayasche, born ca. 1910; and another
daughter Celia, birth date unclear.
=20
I believe that Morris arrived in NY on Feb 21, 1906 on the SS Ryndam,
settling in Passaic, New Jersey. He was joined by his son Aisik, who
arrived Dec 17, 1910, on the SS Russia. Sarah and their other children
arrived in NY on Feb 7, 1912, on the SS Kursk, joining Morris and Aisik in=
Passaic. At some point soon thereafter (and certainly by 1914 or 1915)
they moved to Chicago, where most of their children remained. Morris died
in Chicago in 1939; Sarah died in South Haven, Michigan, in 1943.
=20
I would very much appreciate any help or information you might have about
Morris and Sarah's families in David-Horodok, Kozhan-Gorodok, or
Luninyets. If you are related or are interested in more details about
their children in the US, please contact me and we can swap notes and
photos.

Many thanks,
