Where are you from?
San Diego, but live in Bakersfield, California
Hello! My father was Lloyd Irvin Gillin, born Irvin Lloyd Gilinsky. His father was Casper Earl Gilinsky and his mother was Ida Graceman Gilinsky. Casper Earl was the son of Isaac and Yetta Gilinsky. Isaac G was the son of Moses Lazar and Fay Pearl Horwich Gilinsky (wife #1).
I am interested in learning more about my family and learning if I have any relatives, too.
My grandmother's (Ida Graceman Gilinsky) father was Rabbi Leib Graceman from Russia.
Interesting stuff. I've just learned all of this recently and it's tying up some loose ends that have always puzzled me.

Hi my soon to be Grandfather in law is a Glinski, Mr Bazyla Glinski, he is from a town called Vinsk. Apparently he left Poland as a child as the war broke out, he was put on a boat with 200 other children and sent to Outshourn, South Africa. Another Family in Poland I'm look for is for Zofia Adamska. One of the 200 children on the boat to South Africa.
Please if anyone one has information for either of these surnames it would be greatly appreciated. With thanks, Deone

Hello Stanley, Not sure if you remember me. I am still in touch with the family of Ziske Shapiro (z"l) in Pabrade, Lithuania: son Moshe, Moshe's wife Vera (recovering from breast cancer), daughter Julia, and wonderfully bright and talented Polinochka. They are now being helped by the Survivor Mitzvah Project (survivormitzvah.org), where I volunteer Russian and Yiddish translating. Zane Buzby just returned from Lithuania, where she met the surviving Shapiro's in person. They are wonderful people!

So, we have a coat of arms, could that be used to buy a peerage?
I would have thought a Jewish coat of arms would be a chocolate cake.
