Korostyshev #ukraine


My great-grandmother, Marom Vulis Zingerman, A"H, was born in Korostyshev in approximately 1868. She and my grandparents, as well as some other relatives, are buried at Waldheim Cemetery outside of Chicago. My mother remembers that there was a Mr. Starr who she believes owned a dress shop in Chicago, who was in charge of the Korostyshev landsmanschaft in Chicago and sold some of the plots to my family. My mother also remembers that Mr. Starr had written a yahrtzeit book about Korostyshev which was in manuscript form.

Does anyone here know Mr. Starr's full name, or (better yet) know of any of his descendants or of a repository of documents >from the Korostyshev landsmanschaft in Chicago?

Thank you,
Merrill Weber
