Laurence Harris <laurence_harris@...>
 

My name is Laurence Harris and I live in Pinner, Middlesex,
England.

I would like to introduce myself to the group although I suspect
that some of you may have already seen some of my postings.

My maternal grandfather's family were >from the Lodz area
including the towns of Zloczew, Boleslawiec (where they ran the
Mikvah), Lodz, Ostrovah, Kalitz.

I have traced my family back to Chaim Nachum KLENOWSKI (born Abt.
1825). He married Sarah/Sura UNKNOWN (born Abt. 1825, and died
Aft. 1908 at age 80.

Their son was Hersz/Herschel KLENOWSKI (b. Abt. 1850; d. Bet.
1918 - 1939, in Poland.

Hersz/Herschel KLENOWSKI/KLONOWSKI married Chava/Hava/Hawa PINKUS
(born Bef. 1850, and died Bet. 1918 - 1939 in Poland - daughter
of Anchel PINKUS [a synagogue shamas who died aged 105?!]and
Leaka UNKNOWN).
Hershel and Chava ran the Mikvah in Boleslawiec, Poland.
He also grew fruit and sold it at market. Later in life they
moved to Zloczew and he became a tailor.
