Re: Hit a brick wall with Botnick and Mindranski #lithuania

I have Botnick relatives who came to the USA from places near Minsk (Borisov, Zembin) circa 1900.  They first went to Binghamton,NY, where some remain to this day, while others moved on to Mississippi by about 1912.

In my Botnick research, I learned that Botnick is a variation of the name Botvinick (various spellings), and those two versions are essentially interchangeable, even within a family group.  So, if you haven't searched to see if your Botnicks show up in other records as Botvinick, that could be worth a try.
