Pilchman Family

Minnie Pilchman Berman came to America in 1921 from Poninka.  She was the daughter of Golda
Peltz (1876-1950) and Benjamin Pilchman, formerly Berl Pilchin (1878-1960).  Berl, the son of Shimon Pilchin, arrived in New York on December 6, 1912 on the "Konigin Luise" from Bremen but was unable to send for his family until 1921 (obviously World War I interceded).
