Looking for Godelnik and Applebaum family relatives in the US #usa


My father, Chaim Godlenik, was born in 1912 in the village of Siemyaticze, Poland, to Sheina Sara (her father - Fischel Applebaum) and Yossef Yoell Godlenik.

Attached the invitation to my grandparents' wedding (written in Yiddish and Russian):


In the family, there were six boys. My father and two brothers immigrated to Israel in 1936 and all the rest of the family perished in the Holocaust.

Excluding a cousin in Australia (with her family I am in contact with) - I knew of the existence of a family, on the side of Godlenik, in the United States. In the past, I tried to locate them and when I reached the end of the thread - there was no response from the other side.

I recently went over listings of close relatives in the United States from Applebaum's side. I found at:


One, which seems to be my grandmother's brother (due to similarity in: family surname and name of father,  and name of village)and his family, as off below:


According the above information and more information I got from internet, I build the bellow family tree:

This tree is completing a missing section in my family tree (from my father's side).

I wish to connect with, at list, one of the family, by mail or by phone.

Thank you very much for help.
