David Annenberg and Carole Freeman Family History and Genealogy Website


 This is our Berkowitz Documentation Page                                         


     This page is about the Berkowitz, Jacobs, Yanklevich, Balk, Paikwoski / Paikowsky, Shlanksy / Shlanski and Asner Families that came from Vilner and Eishyshok, Poland and Eishyshok and Vilnius Lithuania.

    There are 2 branches of the Balk Family. One is part of the Berkowitz Family, which is my family, and the other appears below as a courtesy to Hyman Balk.   That branch is from Radvilskis, Lithuania. Please contact him concerning information about that branch.

    We think the Shlansky Family is related to one of the families listed below. Please see their information as well.

Some of the information  concerning the Paikowsky, Asner and Shlansky families came from the book 'There Once was a World A 900 Year Chronicle of the Shtetl of Eishyshok'  by Yaffa Eliach and  'Tradition and Modernism in the Shtetl Aisheshuk 1919-1939'  by Ellen Livingston.
