My great grandfather, Victor (Avigdor) KRAVITZ was born in Janova in
roughly 1865. He died in Chicago in January, 1951. His parents were
Isiah and Leah Cyril KRAVITZ. He had a brother, who took the last name
Garber when they moved to the USA, as his brother was a tanner.
Victor KRAVITZ married Loni SCHNEIDER and moved to the nearby town of
Droghichin, where they had Bessie, Sarah, Joe (Friedel), Meyer, and
Jerry. All eventually settled in Chicago.
Wondering if anyone out there knows of any other brothers or sisters of
Victor KRAVITZ and what became of them. I am also trying to track down
Leah CYRIL's maiden name. It may link me to a very large family tree of
KRAVITZ >from Janova/Droghichin
RICHIE/YZVERRICHEN >from Shklov
BEDNO/BEDNOVITCH >from Zambrov
YELLIN >from Wysockie Mazovetz
