Researching LEVIN & CHOMSKY family from Grodno... #general
Gail Dechter <marvgailsarah@...>
I am new to researching my family & would appreciate any info you might
be able to give me . My father, Irving (Isak) Levin, & his family
immigrated >from Grudno to Ellis Island, in approximately 1915 to 1917.
My grandmother, Sonya (Chomsky) Levin, died shortly upon arrival during
childbirth. I believe she is buried in the Montefiore cemetery in NY.
My grandfather, Max Levin & the family moved to Chicago about a year
later. I would like info regarding my grandmother & the Chomsky family.
I would also appreciate any info on Grudno, & ships & passenger lists
sailing >from the area in that time frame.
Thank you in advance
for your help!
