Krynki, Poland #poland

Bob Silverstein

I am looking for people who lived in the Polish shtetl Krynki and their descendants.  It is about 25 miles northeast of Bialystok.  I have heard about a group called the Organization of Krinik Survivors but cannot find any information about it.  I would appreciate any help so I can contact that group or others with connections to Krynki.

Researching Kaplan (Krynki, Poland) Tzipershteyn (Logishin, Pinsk, Belarus), Friedson/Fridzon (Pinsk, Cuba, Massachusetts), Israel and Goodman (Mishnitz, Warsaw, Manchester).


There is a book written by Michael Palmer on Krynki which I believe had some of the survivors names as well as some of those who perished. If you contact me directly, I will share my cousin's email with you. He was born in Krynki pre WWII. His memory is fantastic.

The 1858 Revision List for Krinky, Grodno, Belarus has information on a family dual-named Kaplan/Kirpichnik. My maternal grandmother immigrated from Grodno in 1910 and was Anna Kaplan in the US, but said her surname sounded something like Kapaushnik in Belarus. As Kapaushnik and Kirpichnik are similar, I assume the Kaplan/Kirpichnik family in the Revision List is my grandmother’s family, but am interested in whatever information others may share in this matter.
