My recent note regarding "Everything is Illuminated" mentioned my interest
in ZELINSKY. This name drummed up a very intriguing link still being
investigated. If others of you are pursuing ZELINSKY and variants, mine are
Bernard Zelinsky (my gggf) is an unknown. His son PINCUS (interpreted in the
Mass 1920 census as ELIAS or some such) was a shoemaker, b.1877-1940,
immigrated 2/15/1904 Southhampton to Ellis, and lived in Brockton, Mass
(Plymouth County), USA. Closest I can interpret the Imm papers on Pincus, he
identifies GORRIBIN (possibly GORUBIU) Russia as place of birth. He married
Rachel Dorn (I know a great deal about the DORN side) prior to 1903 and had
3 kids, Bernard (Barney, my gf) Yetta or Etta and May.
Anything here familiar? Love to share data.
Have a safe and fun American Independence Day!
