Re: Where Was Wilkennie, Russia? #russia #names


I can confirm the information given by others since I recently looked up this JewishGen entry. For reasons I do not understand, my grandfather Jack Cooke (Kruk) and his brother Max helped found the Northend Wilkomir Society (a burial society) in the 1920s referring to the north-end of Montreal where the main Jewish cemetery was located.  They were both born in Warsaw, Poland, so I cannot establish their connection to Wilkomir unless some earlier generation came from there.
