My great-grandmother's maiden name was Shala (and/or Sarah, Eudis) Grodzensky. I have a letter referencing her brothers and sisters and it viewable in my public tree. I am seeking any connections, or information about Grodzensky families in Russia/Poland. Alternate spellings include (but are not limited to) Grodzinsky, Godzinsky, etc. What I do know is that she was related to a Rabbi. She had a keen memory and math ability, and could keep books in her head, and work with large columns of numbers. Not bad for a girl who never went to school. Her husband, my great-grandfather was a learned man, I suppose primarily in Jewish Torah, and was known in his community for solving problems, and negotiating between people. Maybe the equivalent to a mediator today. His name was Shimon Samoschzianski, which also had alternate spellings. Once married, they lived in Volkavisk, Poland (with many alternate spellings :o)). He was married once before but his wife died. I have the names of her siblings on my tree. Thank you!
