Re: Witkin family from Mogilev #belarus

Carole Feinberg

Sorry, Judy, I cannot offer you any help. But, your post helped me recall my early years. In the 1940s and 1950s, for a treat, my parents would buy deli from Witkin's Deli in Bronx, NY, for the family to enjoy at home. Mmmmmm. It was a weekend treat. Come to think of it, you ought to look into Jewish cemeteries in New York City, many of which have searchable online databases. Besides surname, look into Mogilev landsmanshaftn, too (social/burial societies). Traditional Jewish tombstones usually include the father's given name of the deceased, Good luck finding your family.
