Hi,
I think this is a long shot, but I am wondering if there might be a connection between your Janofskys and the Dworkins who are family members of mine. Samuel and Celia Dworkin, both born in Russia, had a son Louis,and daughters Sophie, Eva, Fannie, and Sadie. Louis was married to Sarah (maiden name unknown to me).

My family always said that Murray Janofsky (parents Herman and Celia) was a cousin. [Murray Janofsky was the well-known comedian, Jan Murray.] I know there was a connection between Louis Dworkin and Murray Janofsky, but am not clear as to what that connection was.

As you mentioned the name Dworin (which might be Dworkin) in your Janofsky post, I wondered if there might be some relationship here.

My grandmother's maiden name was Blumenthal and the Janofskys and Dworkins were somehow related to the Blumenthals. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Faye Gibson, Denver, Colorado
