The 1834-1842 Trakai District Revision List for the town of Ratnycia, Trakai, Lithuania has a household whose head is recently deceased. The household is "Frenski" and the name of the head of the household is Girsh ben Efroim.

According to the coordinator for the Trakai District in the Litvak SIG, this is the single occurrence of "Frenski" in the entire Trakai District lists. The coordinator believes this is a transliteration error and that this name is Frenkel.

This fits perfectly into what we already know about the Frenkel family in Ratcynia and now we can tie all 10 Frenkel households of this small village together.

Girsh ben Efroim is noted to have died in 1833. He was 56 in the 1816 additional revision list, which would make him 71 in 1833. That means he was born circa 1762.

Family noted in the household:

  • Widow of Girsh ben Efroim, Dina, age 71 (born circa 1763)
  • Grandson, Efroim ben Schlomo, age 22 (born circa 1812)
  • Wife of grandson, Rauza, age 19 (born circa 1815)
