WEINTRAUB, BARTNOFSKY in Mogilev, Belarus #belarus


Marcia Lloyd
 

Hi, Rishy,
Thanks for your reply. A Mr. Nolan recently contacted me with Barnofsky from Wolkowsk, and his grandmother, Anna Bela Bartnofsky (not her married name)  and her family lived on Rodney Street in Brooklyn just a few houses down the street from 371 Rodney Street, where Bessie Bartnofsky Weintraub, my paternal grandmother, lived with my grandfather, Jacob Weintraub, and their family. In Europe, she and Jacob lived min Mogilev, Belarus, but she may not have been born there. Moreover, Anna Bela was born in 1864, and Bessie in about 1861, so I thought they might have been sisters, but Mr. Nolan never heard of Bessie, so he thinks that perhaps they were only cousins, but I still have my doubts.

What else do you know about the Barnofskys? Any photos?

Best,
Marcia Lloyd

Marcia,

If either of them naturalized in 1929, or after, than a photo will be on the nat papers.  Not all nat papers are on-line, but many are, so try searching their names at:

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

Hello Marcia,
I have Barnofsky/Bartnovsky on my family tree.  They came from a town called Wolkowysk.
I believe most are related.  Please feel free to contact me.
Regards.

Looking for information, particularly photos, for anyone with the above surnames. My paternal grandfather, Jacob, came to Brooklyn in 1902. His wife, Bessie Bartnofsky, came over with their children, including my father, Aron (whose name may have been changed to Harry by then), in, I think, 1903 or 1904. They lived on Rodney Street in Brooklyn.

I’ve never seen any photos of these grandparents and never met them, nor have I ever seen any photos of my father as a boy. Any information at all would be appreciated. During W.W.I, my father changed his last name to WINTHROP to avoid being accused of being German.

Best,
Marcia Lloyd
