Pinsk Looking For?
I have been unable to make any headway in researching the surname BURGIMSKY.
My grandmother, CHAWA SZWEC, passenger manifest lists a brother named
MOISCHE BURGIMSKY residing in the town of Pinsk as a living relative in the town
from which she was emigrating in 1920. It is clearly written and very
legible on both her manifest and that of her four children (whose manifest lists
him as their uncle). This name does not show up in the Jewishgen databases
except for my posting in the JGFF. To further complicate the matter her
children did not all agree on the name from their memory as indicated on their
various US documents such as birth records, marriage records, etc. They show the
following variety: Budimsky, Dubinsky, Vidinsly. My grandmother had no living
relatives that we know of with the exception of a step-sister born late in
life to her mother, YEHKVEDA, but with the surname of MERER. This family
connection has been explored but did not yield any information about the
BURGIMSKY surname. Is there anyone who might be able to offer some guidance
as to how to research the BURGIMSKY name?
