I also have stories about the Brodsky family.
My paternal Grandfather, Jacob Zamansky, and his family were master carpenters who worked for the Brodsky
sugar beet farms. My maternal Grandmother Schifra Dolinsky’s father was a bookkeeper for the family.
At one point in time it was told to me that her father Moishe Dolinsky also kept the books for the Brodsky synogogue in
either Smila or Kiyev.
I don’t know what happened to Moishe but his wife Dina and all but one daughter were able
to come to this country. Genia Dolinsky Krupnik supposedly died in the Shoach.
There were also many Brodsky family members who emigrated and settled in the Hudson Valley
of New York.
