Here's an e-mail I received in 1995:

Date: Fri, 06 Jan 1995
From: ...
Subject: Hi

My name is Mark Palchuk and it explains this E-mail.
I came into USA 5 years ago.
My father Boris (Ruvim) Palchuk (died in 1982) had a nephew in Pinsk.
I think maybe there is a link.

This message was as unexpected as it was miraculous - the Palchuks reunited after being separated by the ocean and out of touch for decades.


The genogram of the Roshal family used here (without permission for now) comes from Israel Roshal's book "Istoki" or "Beginnings." The book chronicles the history of 6 generations of the Roshals.
