Information Question
Category: Do you recognize?
Family Surname: Krapotskin
Country: Poland
Town: Zhabinka
Date of Image: 1917
  The back of the photo is in Russian and it reads:
“For good memory to my good friend Sheina Zubatsky from Sophia and Rebekah Krapotskin, Zhabinka, 31/05/1917”
Sheina is my grandmother – Sheindla “Jennie” Zawatsky. She was born in 1895 in Zhabinka; she married Froim Goldberg in 1919 and in 1920, their first daughter was born. They immigrated to the USA arriving in Ellis Island on May 4, 1921.
The two women in the photo are the Krapotskins. I have not had much luck with locating any family. They were most likely sisters and born around the 1895 time frame in Zhabinka.
