    My Grandfather was Harris (Hersch?) HANAPOLSKY of Bila Tserkov (Kiev Gubernia), Ukraine who settled in Philadelphia around 1888.
    I do not know of any relationship to the Rabbi of whom you write, however I am anxious to make contact with any Hanapolskys from the areas mentioned above.
    I happened on your site through Google Alert and would appreciate communicating with you as soon as possible. I will be at the International Jewish Genealogy Conference in Philadelphia at the beginning of August this summer, but would like to be in contact with you before then. Thank you for your consideration.

    Could the rabbi have come from Kiev? A relative of mine evidently traveled to NY and then Philadelphia with a Hanapolsky from Kiev, in 1890. Offhand I do not know the first name of that Hanapolsky, but I do have it in my records and can look it up (another day!) I do remember it was not Baruch!

    I have a tree of the descendants of Rabbi Baruch from Philadelphia.
