Has anyone ever heard of a music conductor named ZELINSKI? Family lore
says that my maternal great-grandfather was related to him.
An additional mystery is that I have seen my maternal grandmother's name
stated as ZELINSKY on her husband's passport application >from 1906, and on
her marriage record >from the Odessa archive in the same year as ZELENY.
The above-mentioned great-grandfather traveled to Europe under the name
ZELENY. I have yet to find a Jewish ZELENY outside my known family.
