Chvonicker Independent Aid Association

contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

I was unable to locate this landsmanshaft until I saw a message from the toastmaster, Sam Kahan, which stated that the town of Chvonick was in the Minsk gubernia. On a map of Minsk in volumes of Minsk Yizkor books, Yeshiah Metal, YIVO librarian found Chvonick in the deep southeast corner of Minsk gubernia, spelled with one vov where the landsmanshaft spelled it with two vovs. In the shtetl finder it is listed as Khvoyniki which was probably why I couldn't find it in "Where We Once Walked". The Yiddish spellings of Slavic place names is a wonderful opportunity for playing guessing games. We were astonished that a shtetl of less than one hundred families could produce such a lasting association. I stand in awe of our immediate ancestors.
