I had one branch of my family in Zhitomer, see below.
- Joseph Zelig Shanuk (born in Russia, died 1903 in Zhitomer) and his wife Chana, born in Krakinovo, Russia). They had 3 children - Sarah, Gittel and Chave.
- Joseph Stadlin (born 1875 in Zhitomer) and his wife Sarah Shanuk Stadlin (born 1878 in Russia), immigrated to the US in 1904.
I don't know the names of Joseph Stadlin's parents or siblings. Maybe they were related to your Stadlens. WHat information do you have on them?
