My grandfather Louis was born Dec. 13, 1897 in Minsk, Russia - on his SS application his shtetl looks like Wakge or Wilkye. His brothers Isidore and Benjamin were younger I believe - Isidore had two or three children but his wife had them change their names to her maiden name which was Felner. Benjamin had no children. They had an older brother who disappeared and we do not know his first name yet - my grandfather also had a sister who remained in Russia, married and had at least one son who held a low level government job in the Communist regiem. This is basically what I am going with right now.
