LEVINE (Bialystock) & AIN (Wolskowisk, Belarus) #rabbinic

color consultant <colordesigns@...>
 

Here is how the Morris AIN genealogy fits into the Michael LEVINE
genealogy:

Let me tell you how I fit in to that tree. Do send me anything you
would like (at no cost to me) as I'd love to have that tree.

Yetta LEVINE is the older sister of my father, Michael LEVINE.
Michael LEVINE had nine brothers and sisters. His mother was Anna
KUTKOWSKI who married her cousin, the rabbi and scholar, R' Joseph
LEVINE (LEVIN/LEWIN) >from Bialystock. She was a blue-eyed redhead
who had nine children. I understand one son drowned, but the rest
were born in Bialystock except for Michael LEVINE, born in NY in the
lower East Side near Delancy St. on Dec 8 1894. They later moved to
the Bronx and Michael, married to Sally TUCKER, daughter of Pauline
HERKOWITZ, whose mom was Frida HERKOWITZ moved to Brooklyn where he
bought a house >from Lena Levine in 1934. Okay that Michael is my
dad.

Anyway, here's how the AIN fits in. When Yetta LEVINE married Morris
AIN, they had children... One of them, Barney AIN became
Superintendant of Schools in one of the NYC Boroughs. Dr. Jack M.
AIN, MD became a physician, and he delivered me when I was born in
1941 in Brooklyn. He made house calls and frequently visited us. He
was a good looking man who looked like George Hamilton, the actor.
His brother Harry AIN married Ruby Tomber AIN, I never met their
son, but they had two daughters, Barbara Ann Ain FINK and Marsha
AIN. All through my childhood I would visit them in Brooklyn with my
mom, Sally Tucker LEVINE, and they would give me "tons" of their old
clothes as we were very poor and they were what looked quite rich.
So I loved going over there throughout my childhood as I'd always
get a gift of clothes so wonderful that I'd have to have "money" to
buy them. I was so grateful and happy. Marsha came to my sweet 16th
birthday party and Barbara Ann I loved to talk with about careers.
Barbara Ann AIN went to Brooklyn college and majored in Speech. It
was she who advised me at 14 to choose between a Biology
major/Genetics and an English major. I choose a combination and
became an author of 45 books (38 currently in print). So I say thank
you to Barbara Ann.

I haven't seen them since 1956. Harry AIN traveled all over the
world to sell medical products. His brother, Jack M AIN was my
family physician all my life, always making housecalls. He'd tell me
about the cruises he took, etc. Then there was my dad's brother, Sam
LEVINE. He was very wealthy in the plumbing wholesale supplies
business and lived near Central Park and 59th St. In contrast, my
dad, Michael was a disabled vet >from WW1, and we had no money, so I
was the poorest... but I wrote lots of books and was into the arts.
I haven't had contact with any of these people for probably 50
years. My present husband is not Jewish, but anyway, I always
wanted to find out where my ancestors came from. I have eight
grandchildren. My daughter's husband is >from Aleppo, Syria, and my
son' (the neuro-radiologist) lives in Michigan and is married to a
woman >from Beirut. They have three children. So the grandchildren
are now of Middle Eastern ancestry as in the Bible days or so. My
first husband was Syrian. He died decades ago. My present husband is
Scandinavian. We're married for the past 30 years and no children.
So I now found out where my ancestors came from.

My dad belonged to the Wolskowisk Society or at least received lots
of mail >from them, so he may have a connection on his mother's side
from Belarus. His brothers were born in Bialystock. Are those
cities pretty close in geography? Thanks for all this information.
Sally TUCKER is the daughter of Belle WEITZMANN born in 1861 who may
be related to Chaim WEITZMANN and Israel or Isaac TUCKER. Their son,
Chaim Muni TUCKER, born around 1881 married Pauline HERKOWITZ of
Bessarabia and Plata Del Mar, Argentina in Albany NY. Sally TUCKER
was born in Albany, NY in 1904 and given away by her mother to
Herman TUCKER when they divorced. He later had four other children
from Dora Ross FABER, and Sally TUCKER was reared by Herman TUCKER
and Dora until she returned to Albany in 1924. I have about 300
photos in my computer of this family in Atlantic City and
Philadelphia taken in 1925. In any case, to complete the family tree
for those interested, Michael LEVINE married Sally TUCKER in 1925.
They lived in the Bronx until 1934 and then in Brooklyn 1934-1967.
They had two children, Frank and me, Annejoan, So there's the tree
for those searching both the AIN family of Wolskowisk, Belarus and
the LEVINE Family of Bialystock. To continue the tree, Frank LEVINE
married Elaine GOLDSTEIN in 1956, and they had two children, Rhonda
LEVINE and Wayne LEVINE, whom I haven't seen or had contact with
since 1963 or so. Annejoan LEVINE has eight grandchildren. First
husband was >from Aleppo, Syria, two children, Desiree, mother of
five, and Brad, a neuro-radiologist with three children. Annejoan's
second is American Danish, no children, married 30 years so far. So
that's the family tree up to date. My research was focused on
finding anyone related to the original couple: Anna KUTKOWSKI and
Joseph LEVINE/LEVIN/LEWIN of Bialystock who married into the AIN
family when their daughter, Yetta LEVINE married Morris AIN of
Belarus.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone interested in these relatives.
If you're related to me, feel free to penpal. I haven't heard from
my family in 40 or 50 years. So everyone will be greeted warmly, and
I'll write to all. I have several relevant Web sites of interest. So
write to me off this list and I'll send you my web site addresses
also.

Thanks

Can anyone tell me if William was a name adopted by men born Boruch in
that part of the world, in the time frame involved?
It's quite possible. People who "Americanized" their names often
just took one that struck their fancy, without doing any etymological
analysis. They often tended to take a common name that had the same
initial sound, so here Boruch could become Bill, which then became
William.

I typed in the words 'dating old photos' onto Google and it came up with
numerous entries but I looked at the following web site.

http://www.familychronicle.com/photoxtra.html

On this web site there are examples of photos showing the fashions from
1840,50,60,70,80,90 and 1900. This is very useful if you have a photo of
someone and can't date it - you may be able to compare what they were
