Krynki, Poland #poland


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.

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.

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.
