Finding Family Grajewo and Szcuzyn Podlaskie Poland #poland
From: Esther Brill
Date: Wed, 10 Jun 2020 08:26:40 EDT

I am looking for information about my paternal grandparents and great grandparents and any siblings and children of these people  I only became interested in genealogy only  2 years ago. 
 
As only 1 of 2 grandchildren left, I  had no information about them although I did know my father's parent's names.  Additionally, name changes have made it especially difficult,  Most, if not all, of the names came from my grandparents' marriage registration found in JRI-Poland.org
 
Looking for information related to paternal grandparents,  great grandparents, and their children. Most of the names come from my grandparents' marriage registration and discovered through a beginning Geneology course from JewishGen with Nancy Holden. 

(1) GGF Mordechai Jablonsky b 1828* died before 1888 as cited in his son’s marriage certificate
                 Listed as Mortchaj on his son’s marriage registration on JRI  - lived in Szcuzcyn, Poland
-          Married 1846 to
GGM – Leja (Leia) Grossman b 1828 died before 1888 daughter of of Leybka Grosman and Basia Mendelsohn  *
=this information was also found relatively recently  on Grossman family tree which referred to Landsmen, 5-4 p57 #39 and also listed children below
Also referred to a father of Mordechai as Danowich  zLeybka– no other info found
(2) GA i. CHAJA FEJGA JABLONSKI  b 1848 in Szczuczyn (Landsmen,5-4 p57 #39) No other information

      GF ii. YANKEL GERSZ JABLONSKI (1863(or -1913)***   Hebrew name: Elchanan David

(1)               Married   a) Chaja Remba 24 Feb 1884 to daughter of Lejba Remba and Pawia nee Losewska) (registered in Szczuzcyn). (JRI Poland Atka/Record 5)
 
(2)           GM           b) ESTERA GOLDBERG  b. (daughter of Szelma/Shlomo Goldberg son of and Branna Trcianska  daughter of Aron and Dweuara  on 28 Dec 1888, registered Jan 9 in  Grajewo Poland (From JRI Atka 34
*** Jankil/Yankel  1911 emigrated to US as David Levin ( manifest of SS Bremen) but was known as David Levine, although referred to as  Jacob on daughter Sara’s NYC marriage license
                                His Manifest cited wife, Ester Jablonski as relative at home and   Ilia Lewin – could be brother or b-in L at 229 Broome St. NYC very hard to make out but name found through census records Isaac Lewin, wife Rebecca and children
-          Died Nov 31, 1913 – homicide – caught by gunfire between police and gangster (
The New York Times, Dec 1, 1913, 
Gangster's Victim Dies: Shot By Max Cohen Whom Policeman Kills Moments Later)
 
-          Found a Yankel Jablonsky in Statue of Liberty’s earlier than 1911 but doesn’t seem to account for dates of children’s  births
 
Ester emigrated May 1917 as Esther Jablonski  with 4 of her 5 children, Oldest son Modechai remained  in Poland and going to same name as David cited but this time at 52 Suffolk – census reveals same names in household
-          She died June 1932 .  – however, her tombstone has  the name Goldberg – have found no records for marriage, her death, and at present can’t find her tombstone Cemetary gave me a different  Ester Goldberg and a different plot.
-          -Have  not been able to trace her once she reached NYC
 
Would also like to trace Isaac Lewin to determine exact relationship.  A sister named Zlate is named in marriage registration, but Isaac’s wife is named Rebecca.  Have not been able to identify any siblings for Estere, nor her parents and grandparents - I would be grateful for any assistance
