Any Penski descendants out there? My husband's grandfather was from the area of the Pensk/Pinsk River in Russia/Poland (depending on when you lived there). When asked by immigration at Ellis Island, "What is your name?", he misunderstood the question and answered that he was from Pensk, and that's how we have our surname. I suspect the Pinsky name may have the same history.
