Yesterday, I wrote:

Does anyone have the family trees of the SCHATZKES
family and this Rav Mordechai Gimpel YOFFE family, and could they
see if Pinsk or Karlin and the name KANTOR or any other details
mentioned above appear there.
I noticed in another family source that the names SCHATZ was spelled
in Hebrew with an additional "Kuf" (although in English it would be
spelled SHKATSCH). However, this gives an another strong hint of
some connection to the SCHATKES family (rather than SCHATZ).

Does anyone know of any connection between the SCHATKES family and
Pinsk &/or Karlin?

My ggguncle Chaim Dov's wife was a niece of Rabbi Y.E. SPEKTOR of
Grodno. Was there any connection between the SCHATZKES and SPEKTOR?
(besides the fact that they and/or their descendants gravitated
toward my alma mater RIETS at Yeshiva University.)
