My Binenbaum Ancestors

By Larry Binenbaum Schenker

note: This article was originally published in 2008 at http://akkerman-russian-empire.blogspot.fr. Larry Binenbaum passed away in 2013.

I am researching my possible ancestors around the world.

Although my Surname today is Schenker, my father and grandfather were born as BINENBAUM in Brest-Litovsk, Russian Empire.

It is my belief that this Surname has a German origin.

Back in 1911 when my grandfather and father emigrated from Brest-Litovsk, Russian Empire (later Brzesc nad Bugiem, Poland and today Brest, Belarus), we had relatives that were living in many cities of Europe. Some of my relatives survived the holocaust and migrated to other countries of the world. Some might have modified the spelling of their Surname.

I am searching for anyone with the Surname of BINENBAUM, BIENENBAUM, BINENBOYM or BINENBOJM or any derivation of this Surname.

I know that there were some of my ancestors who were born, died, married or emigrated from Akkerman. Below is a list of my known Binenbaum ancestors from Akkerman:
