He was born in Minsk and from 1903 lived in Vilnius.
He was the brother of my wife's great great grandfather Gershon CITRON. b.
1839 in Minsk, a merchant of wine and spirits, who in 1883 was living in
Dvinsk , Latvia; in 1897 in Kreutzburg/Krustpils, Latvia; and in 1909 was
living in Zichron Yakov near Haifa.
While there are several biographical mentions of Shmuel Leib CITRON , none
mention if he was married with family. I will be grateful to whoever may
know and can provide details.
Shmuel Leib and Gershon were the sons of Jankel & Chana CITRON . According
to family narrative they had a brother Isaac who was murdered with his
family in the pogroms that followed the First World War. JewishGen tells of
a sister Aidele CITRON b. 1847 in Minsk but I have found no further
information about her.
