We are attempting to find descendants of Szolim Lejzor Sokolik in order to invite them to a family reunion to be held sometime in 2005, probably in Las Vegas over the July 4th weekend.
Szolim Lejzor Sokolik was born about 1810 in Łomża, Poland. He was married to Brajna (aka Chaja) Dawidowna, who died before 1849. Szolim died on October 9, 1855 in Gac, Poland. He was survived by at least two children: Dawid Sokolik and Abram Sokolik. He may also have had a daughter named Raska Sokolik and/or a son named Izrael.
Dawid married Estera Malka Idzkowna Radowska on February 20, 1849 and they had three children: Wolf Zyskind Sokolik, Moszk Chaim Sokolik and Szolim. Moszk, in turn, married Sora Gitla Bursztyn and they had ten (count-em, ten) children, from whom many of the Sokoliks are descended. The children are Doba Fejda Sokolik, Cyrla Leia Sokolik, Chaja Sokolik, Dawid Sokolik, Mariam Mindel Sokloik, Benjamin Sokolik, Rywka Sokolik, Neszka Sokolik, Bejla Sokolik and Rochla Sokolik.
Abram Sokolik, Szolim’s other son, had six children, Brajna Bejla Sokolik, Jszk Moszk Sokolik, Rejzia Sokolik, Chana Gitla Sokolik, Maryem Sokolik, and Mejer Sokolik, with his first wife, Zelda Majerowna Kapla. And, not to be outdone by his brother, he had nine (9) more children with his second wife, Sara Basa Moszkowna/Zuckor (a total of 15 children). These children are Chaim Mortek Sokolic, Sender Zyskind Sokolik, Baila Sokolik, David Sokolik, Peshe Sokolic, Esther Malcha Sokolik, Harry Sokolik, Juszk Sokolik and Joseph.
