Can anyone make any connections - I understand my family came from Russia - although my father always said it was Lithuania - On my aunt's marriage license it said Haimowicz - but I knew the family name as Honowitz - later changed to Hunn - we were from Philadelphia = although I understand part of the family was in New Haven, Ct.
Sound familiar to anyone??
My grandfather was Shmuel - Samuel and my grandmother Rebecca nee Shils - they had five children - Lena, Simon, Harry (my father) Albert and Rose.
As far as I understand Simon changed his name in the early 1900s to be able to go to college - and the rest of the family followed suit.
There was also an uncle Avrumel who made wine in the basement in WEst Philadelphia - I guess during prohibition.
If it sounds at all familiar, please contact me.
