Looking for three Canadian Wynne brothers (originally Winograd/Winogradski) #canada

My great-grandmother Libby (Elizabeth/Liba) Winograd/Winogradski (married name Wilensky) had three brothers. I've searched Jewish gen and ancestry, but cannot find any information on her brothers (other than their names and the country they immigrated to). I know that they immigrated to Canada (no idea what province or city) from Russia (or possibly Poland?) at some point and changed their last names Wynne. The brothers' first names (as listed on my great-grandmother's obituary) are Sol, Sam, and Archie. Their father is listed as Reb Moshe HaKohen on my great-grandmother's gravestone. Their mother's name is listed as Chia (I think it's just an odd spelling of Chaya though) on a family tree that I found. I tried searching using my great-grandmother's sisters' names as well, but didn't find anything. Their names are Bessie Levine (from New Jersey) and Anna Applebaum (from Cleveland). If you have any ideas of somewhere else for me to search, or if we maybe happen to be related (!!), please let me know.

Thank you,

I don't have info about your three relatives, but I'm following this as I have WINOGRODSKI relatives from Vilnius (UK and then South Africa).

I think it's a place-based surname, so not everyone with it is related. Jewish Winogradskis seem to have originated in one of several places named Vinograd in Ukraine.

There is a family Wynn or Wynne in Toronto. The only name I remember is one of the sons, Jeff. Frayda Zelman NY.

Hello. It appears that they changed the family name to Wyne (not Wynne). A Google search provides several helpful links. The Jewish Museum of BC (British Columbia) has an oral-history interview with Saul. Via Ancestry.com (and jewishgen.org -- JOWBR), you can find a link to photo of Sam's gravestone, which confirms that his father's name was Reb Moshe haKohen. Sam and Saul lived in Edmonton AB.
