Looking for relatives of Bernard Sheinker #lithuania


Hi David, 

I do not know what exactly you are looking for regarding Bernard Sheinker, but  there are many records, about him and his family, available on ancestry.com and familysearch.org (census, naturalisation, marriage, birth etc records). 

Some corrections : his birth place (according to a 1889 passport application) was  Butrimantz, present-day Butrimonys,Lithuania, his birth date was 18 Jul 1861 and he arrived in the US in  Nov 1881 not 1893. There is a Baruch Schenker b. 1861 who sailed from Hamburg in Nov 1881. Most probably it was him.

Looking for relatives of Bernard Sheinker, born in Trimanchi, Russian Poland in 1863. He emigrated to Boston, MA in 1893 and died there in 1923. He had relatives in the Boston area, the descendants of whom I would like to connect with. Bernard was my maternal grandfather, married to Louise Lutter Lange, who emigrated from Barsinghausen (near Hannover), Germany in 1896. I am researching the history of my family, but have not been able to find any information about the family of my grandfather. I was told that Bernard attended rabbinical school in Warsaw and was affiliated with a yeshiva in Boston, but have no further details. David A. Otto
