I have a picture of a man that is supposedly my great grandfather's brother. My great grandfather was Hersch Feigenbaum. On the picture, my great grand mother wrote that it was Hersch's brother Velvel. I do not know what city they are from. Most documents, ie - naturalization papers, Boston passenger lists, etc. say they are from Russia. But, I always thought they were from Poland. It may depend on where the borders were at the time. What is the year of birth of your Velvel? Hersch's birth year was 1896.
