My gg-grandmother was Szprinca LAST TOKAR and I know that her parents
were Szymon and Sura. I found an 1858 Lukow marriage record for a
Szymon Wolf LAST and Sura GRYNBERG which is the right timeframe for
Szprinca's parents. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this
family and if my gg-gm might be part of it.
Szprinca was probably born in the early-to-mid 1860s (her first child
was born in 1885). We know she had at least 2 sisters, Zelda by the
same mother and Sura by a different mother. We also know that her
father Szymon died before 1885 because Szprinca named her first son
Szymon. Szprinca married Moshe-Hirsz TOKAR. As a cattle trader,
Moshe-Hirsz travelled so any towns in the Brest/Terespol region are
possibilities. When their daughter Sheine (my ggm) married in Brest in
1908, Moshe-Hirsz was described as a "Terespol town dweller" but the
TOKAR name doesn't have much of history in the town of Terespol (only 8
records in the online databases, none of which has obvious ties to my
I'd appreciate hearing >from anyone who can help me with the LAST family.
