My grandfather Samuel Drach was born in 1884 in Wojnilow, now Voynilov, to Yakov (Jacob) and Chana (helen) Drach. He had an older brother Moshe Yehuda. He came to New York City in 1904. Beyond that, I have not been able to find out anything more on the family in Wojnilow. Neither Yakov nor my grandfathger appear in any of the spotty census records on JewishGen. Beyond the minor miracle of finding out more than I already know, I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has information on life in Wojnilow at that period of time, or even has photos.
I have created a website about Wojnilow, which can be found at www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/voynilov/voynilov.html
Include as much as you know of name, town, street address, occupation, date.
