13749 Do you recognize?

10/25/2009 Can anyone identify the People in the picture?
To my best knowledge the picture is of Gersshon Wosk - cohen, his wife, sons and daughters in low.
Gershon Wosk was born circa 1892 in preznitsh (Poland), immigrated to the U.S. circa 1913 and apparently lived in Philadelphia.
Contact with him lost in the early 50's.

13779 Do you recognize?

10/25/2009 This is a photo of the Shapira family. Parents were David and Rivka Shapiro(a). Men's names may be Gaviant, Pinichas , or Chayim. Chaike (Ida) Andelman from Chicago, Illinois is in the center of the photo. Photo was taken in the Ukraine when Chaike went back to see her family in 1972. Family records indicate that they originally lived in Chmielnik in the 1890's, then moved to Vinnytsya (Vinnitsa)in the early 1900's. Possibly located in Kiev now. I am looking for the families of the men in this photo. View the post, there are no responses
