Mendl Vaysman from Zinkov Memorial Book #ukraine


I was wondering where I could get the Zinkov memorial book or any information about the people of that town. My paternal grandmother was from Zinkov. My grandmother’s maiden name was Mordis. Her father, my great grandfather, Isser Zev Mordis had two wives. Sosa(Sura) Hadachnik and my grandmother’s mother, Mollie Neiman(Genemerman). I have not been able to find any family for Isser Zev Mordis. While doing this research I did just come across a Anna Mordis (Fein), born 1890, but do not know where she fits into my tree. One of Anna’s relatives shares a good amount of DNA with my Aunt. Just trying to find out how to go about finding Issa Zev’s brothers, sisters, and /or parents.

I just received my copy of the Zinkov Memorial Book.  It in I found reference to a Mendl Vaysman who immigrated to Israel in 1922 and died there in 1956.  I'm trying to find any living relatives he might have.  My GGrandfather was Mendel Weisman who was originally from Zinkov but lived and worked in Proskurov.  He married my GGrandmother Mirka Ehrlichman (his 3rd wife) who was an orphan from Zinkov.  They emigrated with their 7 children to the US in 1912.  Mendel's parents were Moshe Vaisman and Sara Litsinger.  Thanks for any information you can give me.
