I received my paternal grandmother's application for social security number.
I wasn't expecting to see her last name as LENDER. Some time after my
patenal grandfather LEJZOR KLAJNKOFMAN was killed in the Shoah, my
grandmother remarried. I just learned that his last name was LENDER.
My grandmother was never a KLAJNKOFMAN (unfortunately). At that time in Poland,
they had a quota on Jewish marriages, and the government wouldn't allow
my grandparents to marry so they were only married by a Rabbi.
My maiden name is APTEKAR(Z). There are many ways of spelling APTEKAR
even in the same family including my great uncle who spelled it APTAKER.
The marriage with LENDER was a short one. I think they married in Krasnik,
Poland or they married in Israel because I know they lived there for awhile when
we were there.
How do I find out what his first name was?? My grandmother's Jewish
name was Chaja Bajla, and her English name on the SS card is Helen.
Any ideas where I should look???
Thanks in advance.
