Introduction
This Poskanzer Family Tree is the result of a collaboration between myself and Olga Zabludoff. It was originally based largely on information provided by Samuel (Sonny) Poskanzer and the late Stanley (Corky) Poskanzer, both of Albany, NY. Olga Zabludoff obtained many records from the Lithuanian State Historical Archives. The Rosenberg branch was supplied by Marjorie Bloomberg Tiven, Jane Frueh, and Elaine R. Collins. The Kanzer branch came from J. Michael Gilbreath, with a large addition from Andrew Kanzer. Max Pushkantser in St. Petersburg, Russia has been very helpful with extensive research in Russia and translations from the Russian. Max and his daughter Olga supplied the Ukraine branch. Also, Julia Pushkantser from Israel and Anna Khelemsky from Philadelphia added information on their Ukraine branches.

In the tree a single asterisk indicates that the person appears more than once with different spouses. A double asterisk indicates a marriage of first cousins where the part of the tree which would be duplicated has been omitted. A slash mark between two names indicates alternate spellings. Parentheses surrounding a name indicates either the formal version of the name, a nickname, or a change of name. The entry "cens." indicates information from either a real census or other dated document. In the e-mail addresses “@” has been replaced by “_at_” and “.” by “_dot_” to protect people from spam. The numbers after the names are clickable source references listed on the sources page. If you have any corrections, additions, or comments please contact me at the address below.
