The Beth David Elmont Cemetery, New York, Section E, Block 4 houses a memorial to the Jews killed in Rovno. It was built in 1954.
On one side of the monument there is a list of three dozen names in Hebrew. Among them is the name of my grandmother, Leia Frenkel. You can see her photo near photo of memorial.
Her madden name was Saginur.
I assume that one of her relatives, perhaps a brother or sister, had emigrated to America before the war, and after the war, took part in financing the monument and putting name of my grandmother on the list on monument.
There is no particular hope that the person is still alive. But his children are alive. I would just like to know sometthig about grandmother, grandfather, other relatives who were burnt in the flames of war .
Please help me find relatives from the Saginur family who came from Rivne and lived in New York in the 50s of the 20th century.

2/24/2021 11:44 PM I sent a note to maingroups but don't know if you received it, because I'm having trouble with maingroups. Check There is an Ide Saginur from Rowno who sailed from Libau, latvia and arrived in NYC in 1913 He subsequently applied for citizenship in Michigan in 1922 and was apparently using the name of Louis Saginaw. He fave other names of Ide Lieb and Jude. You can't assume that someone was living in NYC because they donated to a memorial at Beth David, unless you have information from the Landsleit Society. Landsmen kept i touch and would have reached out for names and contributions to the memorial. There are many more Seginurs listed in Familysearch, which is free and in Ancestry. They are all over the U.Sl and Canada. With some research, you can probably track down someone from the family.
