I would like some help too. I am Brode, my great-grandfather was Marcus Brodsky from Melitopal Russia (near Odessa). He, and his five sons soon after the pogroms went to Hailar China before coming to Vancouver. The sons of Marcus were: Jack, Norman, Henry and Leonard. My grandfather Henry was born in 1902 in Melitopal as were his brothers. They all immigrated to Detroit in 1919 where many of us still remain. The last Brodsky to my knowledge was Marcus - the other brothers all changed it to Brode. Before Henry died in 1990 we did a documentary on his life. He was 88 and a bit senile so it's hard to hear exact details. From what I can glean, his father Marcus was in the uniform manufacturing business in Russia - for the Russian army. He was married to Hanna Zinkovski (sp?) I wonder if anyone can help me with some lineage.
