I'm searching for information on my grandfather's family >from Kovel.
In 1921, emigrating >from Kovel to Philadelphia were:
Zalman (My Grandfather age 20)
Fruma (Great Great Aunt 35)
Other family members were documented by Zalman's Yahrzeit records:
Yahrzeit of Duddy
B"R Tzvi B"R Shima
20 in Shevat 5680 (1920)
Yahrzeit my grand father
R' Tzvi B"R Shimmy
3 of Hanukkah
Yahrzeit of my father R' Asher Jacob B"R Moshe Z"L
12th in Tamuz 5679
Yahrzeit of my mother
_Malye_daughter of Tzvi
1st of Sukkot 5676
daughter of Reuven
3rd of Tishrei 5676
We know that Anna BLUMENKRANZ was an Aunt to Zalman and sisters. (Sol,
Helen and Anna BLUM) and that her husband, David SHULMAN was responsible
for the group's safe passage to the US.Â We do not know whether Anna was
a sister of Asher Jacob (the father) or Malye (the mother). Fruma was a
BLUMENKRANZ by marriage to Duddy Tzvi, referred to as "Harry BLUM" in
Josef's Social Security application. Fruma and Malye may have been sisters.
We're also aware of a cousin named Henryk KIPER, which may be helpful.
Any information on the family would be greatly appreciated.
