I just read your posting today. I did receive some information recentley from a Sue Spolan from Philadelphia and she got me in contact with Lena and her Mom, Natasha who live in Israel. They come down from Rebecca who was a sister to my grandfather. They gave me some of the same information you gave me, plus more. I am also in contact with Marina (Lena's sister) who lives near Chicago, and I hope to go meet her soon. I have the same pictures of Mordechai and his wife Rose that Lena has. Are you related too? What happened to Meichel? Did he stay in Russia or go to some other country? Please send me any info you have.
