David Annenberg and Carole Freeman Family History and Genealogy Website

This is our Berkowitz Information 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.

     See the below links for the Shlanksy / Shlanski and Asner Families.

    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.

  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.
