Surnames: Katzman, Wishneff, Vishnievski, Wishnievski
I am searching for my paternal roots. My grandfather's name was changed in the US to Wishneff, but his brothers became Vishnev and Vishneff so original was something like Vishnievski. His name was Samuel,son of Chaim Tevye and Sarah. He had 4 brothers,Max,Lou,Motka and Avrum. The first two came with him to Philadelphia in 1913 but the latter two never left Russia.
My grandmother's family name was Katzman. Parents were Yonkel and Batsheva from somewhere near Kiev. My father's older sister was born in Shpola and younger sister in Ekaterinaslav.
I'm looking for any family contacts.
