The Malkin Family
L to R: Molly,
Celia, Ethel (sitting), Max, Lee, and Belle
Max Malkin and his wife Celia (nee Schneiderman) arrived in the United
States in 1906. They were from a Shtetl called Chashniki in the Province
of Vitebsk (in present day Belarus). Aunt Lee has said that their name in Belarus
was “Malushnikoff” and it was changed to Malkin when they arrived in the USA. It is believed that they arrived through Ellis
Island, a search of the new on-line Ellis Island Records Website
could not find them.
Judging by the outrageous
polyester pants, this was taken in the 1970s.
It was rare that you got them
