Zlochiv) and New York City.
Hershel (Hersch Leib) ZALT/SALTZ/SALT was a cobbler, born c1850,
who lived in Poland. He had six(?) children:
1. Genonezy(Genuncha) ZALT/SALT born 1876. Thought to have
lived in Zlochiv, Poland during period 1913-1918. Married twice.

married Jacob "Jake" KOLINSKI/KOLINSKY. Jake KOLINSKI ran a
baker's shop in Hendry Street, Brooklyn, New York. Fanny and
Jake KOLINSKI had five KOLINSKI children (all born c.1900). The
KOLINSKI surname may have later changed to KALIN:

They had one daughter called Gladys TANNENBAUM.
Gladys married and had a daughter called Joanie.

6. Sam ZALT/SALTZ. A baker in New York. Possibly worked in
Jake's (sister Fanny's Husband) bakery business. Sam married and
had three SALTZ/ZALT children called Issie, Rosie and Lilly.
Postings of these surnames have been made on JewishGen Family
Finder (JGFF). Parts of the family have also been posted on the
Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP).
