FROM LEN LEVIN 6/15/07: Hi Judy, My maternal grandfather, Hyman Nichinsky, came to England from Klodawa late in the 1880s, changing his name to Cohen His anglicized parents' names were Lewis & Annie. Lewis, a tailor & retired soldier, is reputed to have been murdered by cossacks, so Annie , her daughter Eva & the 4 other sons followed Hyman to England . Eva , Harry & Barnet lived out their lives in England, while Hyman & Joe went to live in Australia, & Marks went to Canada. I gave the family tree details to Elaine Herrett, who gave me your email address, also to Honey Bot in Toronto. My g-grandmother was also from Klodawa. She was Hyman's mother-in-law, & her name was Yetta Cymber, ( or Simber). I have a tree of her parents & siblings, if this is of value to you. She married in Klodawa Jacob Czerniak from neighbouring Przedecz. Regards Len Levin.
