I have just discovered the connection between the WOLK/VOLK family line in
connection to my grandmother's rabbinical HaCohen FRANK-BARON of Kovna Giberna
line today and hope this new information will lead to connections with other
Jewishgenners with WOLK/VOLK family.
My Great Great Grandparents were Raycha (WOLK) and Rabbi (I don't know first
name) FRANK. (Raycha would have been born ca. 1840-50. Their daughter Chana
Zeeza (FRANK), a famous talmudic scholar and rabbi's teacher in Kovna Giberna,
married Rabbi Schlomo Meier BARON, a teacher of Talmud Torah in Kovna Giberna.
(They would have been born ca.1860-70). They lived in Vilki/Vilkiji when my
grandmother RUCHEL ("RACHEL") was born in 1890 and their other daughter GITEL
was born. Rabbi Schlomo Meier BARON died in his 30's-early 40's of a heart
attack and Gitel was sent to live with one of his wealthy landowner BARON
brothers. She married a SEGEL/SIGEL lumber/tree inspector, etc....
Rachel (BARON) KIRSNER/KIRSHNER had close WOLK/VOLK cousins who lived in
Brooklyn, NY. She was living in Philadelphia with a BARON uncle and Frank
relatives lived in PA. She settled in Altoona, PA and later the Bronx and
information about the WOLK/VOLK relatives died along the way.
Does anyone have this WOLK/VOLK family connection >from Lithuania? Does anyone
have rabbinical lists of any sort that would help in finding out the name of
My Great Great Grandmother's father and her FRANK husband's first name?
