Dear All
My grandparents came >from Kamyanets-Podilskyy to NY. Samuel Srulowits who married Fanny Schwartz. Her passenger list gives the name Frisne SRULEWISCZ (age 26) with her 2 daughters Zlate (age 3) and Yente (age 2). They lived in the present town of Zarechanka which is 18 miles SSE of Kamyanets Podilskyy. At the time it was called Lyantskorun. Frisne's parents were Mendel and Sadie (Salte) Schwartz She was joining her husband Samuel Srulowitz. She was born and died Feb 17 1941. age 57. She arrived in NY on Dec 23 1908 on the Noordam >from Rotterdam. Samuel arrived in NYC in 1906 on the Kaiserin Auguste Victoria >from Hamburg. He states this on his Petetion for Naturalization but I have never been able to find a passenger record for him. Samuel's father was David Srulowtz. and his mother was Yetta Wolf. His father remarried David married. Benne Kranu GITTLER and they had one son Bene. Srulowitz has been spelled many
ways including SROLOWITS, SURLOVITS, SROLOWITZ SROLOVITCH SOLOWITCH, SRULOWITZ, SRULEWISCZ, SOLOWITCH. finally some of the family changed it to SELSS. A branch went Toledo Ohio changed it to SELLS. We have lost track of them Bene's family changed it but we don't know to what. He is buried in Mount Hebron Queens NY with his wife Beckie. He died in 1971. She died in 1944. Ben and Samuel worked in the furrier industry in NYC. We have also lost track of them. Samuel SRULOWITZ died Feb 26 1948. He and his wife are buried at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery Queens NY. If anyone knows anything about this family please let me know. I would like to make contact with Bene Srulowitz family or any other SRULOWITZ or SELLS family

Thank you,
