My grandparents came >from this Kamyanets-Podilskyy to NY. Samuel Srulowits who
married Fanny Schwartz. Her passenger list gives the name Frisne SRULEWISCZ
(age 26) with her 2 daughters Zlate (age 3) and Yente (age 2). They lived in the
present town of Zarechanka which is 18 miles SSE of Kamyanets Podilskyy. At the
time it was called Lyantskorun Frisne's parents were Mendel and Sadie (Salte)
Schwartz She was joining her husband Samuel Srulowitz. She was died Feb 17 1941.
age 57. She arrived in NY on Dec 23 1908 on the Noordam >from Rotterdam. Samuel
arrived in NYC in 1906 on the Kaiserin Auguste Victoria >from Hamburg. He states
this on his Petetion for Naturalization but I have never been able to find a
passenger record for him. Samuel's father was David Srulowtz. and his mother was
Yetta Wolf. His father remarried David married. Benne Kranu GITTLER and they had
one son Bene. Srulowitz has been spelled many ways including SROLOWITS,
SURLOVITS, SROLOWITZ SROLOVITCH SOLOWITCH, SRULOWITZ, SRULEWISCZ, SOLOWITCH.
finally some of the family changed it to SELSS. A branch went Toledo Ohio changed
it to SELLS. We have lost track of them Bene's family changed it but we don't know
to what. He is buried in Mount Hebron Queens NY with his wife Beckie. He died
in 1971. She died in 1944. Ben and Samuel worked in the furrier industry in NYC.
We have also lost track of Bene's family. Samuel SRULOWITZ died Feb 26 1948. He and
his wife are buried at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery Queens NY. If anyone knows anything
about this family please let me know.

Samuel arrived in NYC in 1906 on the Kaiserin Auguste Victoria >from Hamburg. HeIn the Ellis Island database there is a Stoine Stulowicz that arrived >from Hamburg
on the Kaiserin Auguste Victoria on May 20, 1906. I noticed on his petition that he
wrote May 25, 1906. If you look at the manifest this is clearly SRULOWICZ. The
first names appears to look like Shime not Stoine. You can compare the -h- with the
-h- in Chicago which is written several times on the manifest. There is also
a crossed -t- in Detroit.
