It is a long time since I have posted a messsage. My husband’s family came from Vyshnivchyk/Wisniowcyk, Podhajce district, Tarnopol Woj. According to Rabbi Israel SHOR, a distant cousin of a cousin, there were about 200 Jews with three shuls in the village.
In 1901 seven men formed the Erste Wisniowczyker Kranken Interstuetzungs Verein and incorporated it in NYC. The men were Isak BELLNER, Sigmund DUNAJER, Nathan BUCHWALDER, Hersch HAMMER, Aaron Leib SCHECHTER, Moses HAKEN, Pinchus KESSLER. The society’s first HACKEN burial was in Mt. Hebron in 1919.
I am always glad to exchange information and answer questions about my research or an old hand-written HACKEN-SUHL Tree. Listed below are some of the early names on the tree.
