About Rachel Z Kreinik

"Grandma (Rachel) Kreinik was a tall, slim, lively person, who held herself very straight. She adored us, made much of me because I was so much older than Anna and Irving, and had American tricks to show off, like jumping double rope and other Americanisms, which had the native children goggle-eyed."

Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz, As I Remember, 1962, p 13.

If he was 72 at the 50th wedding anniversary in 1930 , he would have been born in 1858. DWJ
Steve Maskell: "Our great-grandfather was born Joseph (or Yossel) Kreinik, but as a child he got very sick. So, according to the custom at that time, his parents added another name to his so that the angel of death wouldn't find him. Usually, they just picked a name out of the bible and added it to the given name. " Email, 2010.
