family named SLONIM #general

Jake Jacobs

Searching for information about Frank SLONIM and his family.
Arrived in the US 1900-1901. Settled in Duluth, Minnesota,
Wife identified in census as Sarah, children included Sorrell
and Joseph. Birthplace listed on census as "Russia," dob 1849.

Can't find in Ellis Island records, don't know origin beyond
"Russia." We're aware there is a town called Slonim in Belarus
and that is possible, but we have no knowledge or even
suspicion that he came >from there. Found a few entries in
Duluth city directories, but they provided no new information.

Suggestions welcome! Thank you.

Look at towns near Slonim. My family's original name was SLONIMSKY,
but they came >from Lechowitz (Lyakhovichi) in what is now Belarus,
according to my grandfather's papers in 1897.

I would also look at other forms of the name, such as SLONIMSKY,
SLONIMSKI, even SLOMINSKY (as my father's name was misspelled on his
birth certificate).
