Surnames: Finesilver, Wywiecki
I am looking to get in contact with anyone who is related to the family of Morris (Moshe) Finesilver who married Bertha Wywiecki. They were both of Polish origin - Morris from somewhere near Warsaw and Bertha from Warsaw. They came to London in the early 20th century and had a family of 13 children - Annie, Lottie, Beila - who died as a young child), Monty, Frank, Eva, Max, Sid, Alf, Sylvia, Doris, Phil (Pinkus) and Renee. They lived in the East End of London.
I don't have accurate information on dates especially Morris and Berthas and would appreciate any help.

Yes our Morris (Moshe) Finesilver was born in Poland - Gniewoszov, Poland Russian subject as it states on the 1911 census. If you look at the census returns you can see quite clearly that there are 2 Finesilver families. One from Roumania and one from Poland.

I don't know much history, but I know that my grandfather's name was Abraham (Alf) Finesilver. He was from Poland but came to London with his brothers. I do know that he ran and owned a fur company in London. My mother was born in 1942, at which time, my grandfather was in his early to mid 30s. Please contact me at joanzee001@msn.com

We might be related. Because I was told that my last name was Finesilver & was changed to Silver. My grandfather was a furrier.Just read the other posts. My gy grandfather was from Romania.His name was David & he married Lily Barnet from England. They moved to New Zealand & supposedly had family in the States. Which is where I now reside.
