    My grandparents, Samuel and Sophie Rabinowitz Finkel came from Ekaterinoslav. Are there any with those last names in your family tree?

      Yes, Mimi (Miriam) Rabinowitz and her children were at the reunion. Mimi’s mother was Sylvia Yolen Plotkin, who was born in Ekaterinoslav. Mimi and I are 2nd cousins; my grandfather Louis Yolen was the oldest of 8 siblings, all born in Ekaterinoslav. But Rabinowitz surname is linked by marriage. Do you have other family surnames from there, such as “Hyatt”?
