Attached is a photo  in Slonim, Poland circa 1928:   Chaia Yakimovsky Komisarczyk with the two youngest of her 6 children:  Gittel Komisarcyzk [left, my aunt],  and Minnia  Komisarczyk [on the right, my mother].   Chaia married Samuel Komisarczyk.  There other children, Rochla/Ruth, Tema, Sora/Sonia, Maurice.  Only Sonia survives. She will be 100 years old this year.  
Chaia, my grandmother, was the oldest of of 3 daughters of Minya Yakimovsky and Moshe [Mowsza] Yakimovsky who owned the Red Roof Inn, which we have now confirmed is #25 on the drawn map of  Slonim landmarks.   Minya and Mowzsa Yakimovsky  had two other daughters: The middle daugher Reizl, and youngest, Frume.
Chaia married Schaia/Szjaja Komisarczyk.  A  wedding portrat portrait of them made by an artist is attached. They lived in Slonim,  had six children-five girls and a boy.  He emigrated to the U.S. in 1922, and was able to bring her and the children in 1929.   
The Yakimovsky's youngest: Frume Yakimovsky Namiot, married Simcha Namiot.  They and 3 of their 4 children, lived in  Krasnystav, Lublin, and   were murdered in World War II.  The fourth child, Meishe, emigrated to Argentina in 1929.   
The Yakimovsky's middle daughter,  Reizl Yakimovsky Astrynski [Ostrynski] married  Shmuel Zelik [known as Zelik] Astrynski.    Shmuel owned Astrynski and Grodzienski -a forestry operation, and he owned a bus company,  amongst other business concerns, and was philanthropic.  I  have recently located a photo in which he appears, and is attached.  He is bottom row, fourth from the  left, front center.  A better photo is available on the site ww.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Grodno/GroPh306.html.  
I do not know if the following tracing of Zelik Astrynski/Ostrynski might help anyone, but in case, I am providing it below:
