Harvey - Your BEINUSH is so interesting, as I search the family of Hyman BANUS, in the UK.  His wife, Rose (COHEN) BANUS, is my grandmother’s sister - all Lithuanian-born.  Now I will add your variation to the list of all of the others I have: BANUS / BENESH / BENESCH / BENIS / BENNITZ / BENITEZ / BENNISH /BEINASH / BEINASHOWITZ,

Ok, I can see it's an unusual name.

My grandfather was Benjamin Benesch. His parents Israel and Jennie/Scheine Benesch immigrated to the US (Baltimore) from Lithuania around 1890. My Benesch great grand parents lived their lives out in Baltimore and my grandfather and his siblings grew up in Baltimore. I believe that there is a connection to a Kaplan family. Could this be part of the same family? I can give more details if it would be helpful. I've tried to get more information about my Grandfather Benjamin Benesch's family but it's been difficult. (the ship manifest on Jennie Benesch indicates she came from "Sidlowa" if that helps any. Thanks Allison Benesch

My cousin's grandparents' last name was Atlas, but they were from Berlin. If you think it's helpful, I can see if they had relatives in Lithuania. My cousin's other grandparents (my grandparents) were from Lithuania. One was from Silale ("Shalel" in Yiddish).

I know very little about the family of Rabbi Atlas, and nothing to suggest he was related to a Benesch family.  His surname was Atlas. Also nothing to suggest he was related to a Kaplan family, but it was a relatively common surname in that part of the world.

Thanks, this is specifically a family from Lithuania and I'm only interested in Rabbi B B Atlas and his immediate family, so best to leave it for now.

But thanks for responding,
