Surnames: Lipsky (Lipski)
Looking for any information and ancestors of the Lipsky family, they departed Hamburg Germany in April 1893 and arrived in New York , May 1983. Settled in Massachusetts 1899.
Meyer Lipsky born in 1875, left Suwalk, Russland in 1893 . He sailed on the ship Gellert departed from Hamburg in April 1893. He arrived In New York May 6, 1893.
He was married to a Ida Rabotmick, I don’t think she came with him on that voyage, I can’t find any documentation to verify that .
I’m looking for any information on how many children they had besides my great great grandmother Rebecca Lipski. I’m trying to locate information on her siblings.
Here’s some documentation regarding Rebecca, daughter of Meyer Lipski and Ida Robotmick. It’s a Social Security application thar said she was born December 25, 1890 in Palanev, Soviet Union. I was wondering if she had any brothers and sisters who were also born in the Soviet Union?
In searching for more information, Rebecca Lipski married Israel Issac Kramer in Russia. I have been told this was an arrangement by the Temple. Israel came to New York first in 1909, Rebecca stayed behind with two children Jennie and Alec, Rebecca and her two children came in 1911. I don’t know if she came with a sister , she was traveling with her two children. Jenny was born in 1908 and Alec was born in 1910, according to his immigration documents Israel left for America by himself. Israel worked in a grocery store with other immigrants until he could send for his family.
Rebecca’s parents from what I could find out about Meyer and Ida Lipski arrived in New York in 1893. I don’t know if they came with other children that’s what I’m trying to find out. Some of the dates don’t match the information I found so I’m working on searching for more documentation.
