Re: Looking for information on Israel Jacob Wainer and Rebecca Gilgore (Zhitomir/Zhytomyr) #ukraine

Hi camilleart1,

Yes, I agree with Chuck. It would also be helpful to know if you are trying to go back or forward in time with the family. But in the meanwhile, I have found a few things that seem to relate to the family in the U.S. If you are searching for the descendants of Israel and Rebecca, these names and dates might get you started.


The subscription site published some articles of interest from both Delaware and Pennsylvania. I have attached a few of those postings. Several of them also mention the synagogue the family belonged to which you could perhaps contact for information as well.


From the newspaper names and dates, I was then able to find one family tree for Israel Wainer and Rebecca Gilgore on Ancestry and have attached a brief family chart for them as well as a U.S. passport application with photograph for their son Perry Wainer and a death certificate for another son Max Robert Wainer. The person who compiled that tree might wind up being on JewishGen and contact you through this posting. But if they are not a member, and you would like to try getting in touch, email me privately and I will message them on Ancestry with your email address so they can get back to you directly.


The family grave and headstones can be found on the Find a Grave site through this link:

Hope this assists.
