JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen WIMOVSKYs from Russia #general

Greg Henderson name is Greg Henderson and I'm doing research on my wife's family.
Her paternal ancestors were Russian Jews.

The family name originally was possibly "RIMAROVSKY". When they came to America
from 1887-1890 it was "WIMOVSKY" which by 1920 had changed to WIMAN. My wife's
maiden name was Barbara Lynn Wiman.

The man that came to America was "Max Wimovsky" b. abt 1863 Russia.
Some records I've found says he was >from "Minsk"
His wife' name was Leah/Lena/Lizzy? (b.abt 1866 Russia) and I've found various
last names for her REIMER/WILENTZ and ROSS ???
They settled in Deep River, Connecticut bet. 1890 and 1900. They came
in thru "Castle Garden" in NY.

Max and Leah's children:
Abraham b. Russia
Rachel b. Russia
Joseph b. Connecticut
Louis b. " " "
Bessie b. " " "

There ya have it, this what I know about them in a nutshell. Any help with who
their people might be in Russia or any info on Max and Leah would be very
appreciated !!!
