JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Researching: DEMATOFF - Dymer near Kiev #general
Dear Fellow Researchers,
I recently learned that my grandmother and her siblings came to
Chicago >from Dymer [Dimer, Demir] a town not fr >from Kiev, and
located at the crossing of the rivers Irpin and Dnieper.
The family name was DEMATOFF [Dematov, etc]. I am interested to
contact others who have information about the area or have come
across this rather unusual Jewish surname.
Dina Dematoff married Moshe/Morris Kantrowitz/Kanter, and had 6 children.
Chashke Dematoff married Israel Mandel and had several children.
Bennie Dematoff married twice and had a son, Eddie, who was raised by
my grandmother Dina.
All of these families lived in Chicago >from 1900.
Thanks in advance,
Seeking DEMATOFF, KANTROWITZ, Chicago.
