The Kalmikoff & Krevulin Family
traces its origins to Shklov, a shtetl on the banks of
the Dnieper River in the Mogilev province of Belarus.
Our ancestors emigrated from Shklov at the turn of the 20th century, leaving behind their loved ones,
in hopes of starting life anew in America;
the land of opportunity, equality, and freedom.
Speaking only Yiddish and with few personal belongings,
six young adults made the voyage across the
Atlantic Ocean and arrived at Ellis Island.
They settled in Brooklyn, New York where they
found work, married, had children and raised families.
We are the descendants of
Chaim Kalmikoff & Ruchel Krevulin
Yirma Krevulin & Masha Ginsberg
Leyzer Kalmikoff & Riva Leyka Nechamkin
This website is dedicated in their memory,
to tell their stories, their family's story and
the stories of generations to come.
From Generation to Generation
