My Grandmother's maiden name was WIMENITZ. She grew up believing that her
family was the only Wimenitz's left. Through "switchboard.com" I found other
Wimenitz's. Their ancestors all came >from Vitebsk. One person said they came
from a town called ( I'll spell it how it sounds) Beshenkovitz.All these people remember names of cousins, but no one seems to know how
they were cousins. Does anyone have any clue as where I am to begin my
search? I don't need to go back too far, only to the late 1800's.
These people I found were very excited to hear >from me. I would love to
find the "missing link" that would tie our families together. Any
