Lainie Levick <llevick@...>
I'm searching for my family on my father's side, and I'm hoping someone
might recognize these names and events.
My paternal grandparents came to the US >from Ukraine on July 23, 1921.
The names on their Romanian passport were Bercu and Golda LITVAC, >from
Singureui, Romania, although we think they were actually >from Vinnytsa,
Ukraine. They travelled with their newborn son, Chaim Felwich (my uncle),
born in Bucharest on April 5, 1921, on their way >from Ukraine to the US.
Once they were in the US (Philadelphia, PA), my grandfather used the name
Benjamin Levick. Some documents show his parents as Shiya or Hyman LITVAC
and Mary KLINE. We think Bercu had a younger brother David (we think he
perished in Russia), and two younger sisters (names unknown) who we think
went to Argentina.
We think my grandmother Golda's last name was YUZVINSKY/YUZLINSKI, and
her parents were Isiah and Yetta. She had a brother Moshe and a sister
Tzivia. We don't know what happened to them, or if there were more siblings.
On the ship passenger list >from Southampton to New York, my grandparents
list their country of origin as Romania, and friends >from that country as
Jankel Weitmann, 22 Kisemier Street, and Zelig Kretsaman, 20 Kisemier
Street, both in Bels, Romania.
Please respond if any of this sounds familiar, or if you have any
suggestions for further searching.
