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.
