Re: Still seeking immigration information Kaminsky

My maternal grandmother (first name unknown) was originally a Kaminsky , from Odessa in what is now Ukraine. When my mother (born Zelda Echtman or Achtman) first came to America in the mid 1920's she stayed for a year with Kaminsky aunts and uncles in New York until she moved back to Detroit where her brother lived. But she lost contact with them - my family was not great on letter writing. Anyway, 40 years later she visited my older brother who was living in Manhattan and tried to look them up. But there were three pages of Kaminskys in the Manhattan directory and more in Brooklyn and she gave up. Apparently Kaminsky is a very common name.
