Re: Possible descendancy from Reb. Chaim of Volozhin #rabbinic

Sorry for belated response.  Like you, I am interested in rabbinic descent from Reb Chaim and I would appreciate any info you can share.  My email is Alison.drucker18@....
     I kept my maiden name when I married.  My paternal grandfather was Harry Drucker, supposedly from Chernobyl near Kiev, and everyone says he came from a rabbinic line.  So i have been looking for other rabbis with that surname.  I found a newspaper article from Pittsburgh PA about a Sol Drucker, who was described as "the son of Rabbi Lazarus Drucker and Sarah Drucker, a direct lineal descendant of Reb. Chaim Volozhiner, the founder of the Volozhiner Yeshivah."   
    Anything about tracing the family tree of Reb Chaim of Volozhin would be of interest to me.
Thanks so much, be well,  and best of luck!

Also, from a Nov. 2 message on JewishGen, I know of a woman Naomi who also is interested in this subject.  Her email is nbloch2@...
