Acknowledgements I wish to thank my "lieutenants" and the other B'nai Khaim who supplied me with source material and otherwise helped with information and ideas. I list my "lieutenants" alphabetically. While the burden did not fall equally among them, they share my gratitude in equal measure: Bernhard, Gloria (Grossman) Blum, Zahava (Dudnik) Brandt, Minnie (Trachtman) Dudwick, Harry A. Douglas, David Galler, Morris and Polia Gilman, Boris Goodman, Yetta (Trachtman) Kareff, Dorothy (Gelman) Korn, Vivian (Galler) Matson, Rhoda (Kaprov) Mittleman, Dr. Gordon (grandson of Daniel Gelman) Newler, Edith (Kaprove) Robboy, Dr. John Rosen, Edwin Rosenbaum, Jeannette (Kaprove) Rossen, Arlene (Perlman) Shiffren, Leah (Dratch) Weinstock, Marilyn (Trachtman) Then there were these: Joseph and Isaak Dudnik (cousins) set up the first charts for the Dudnik Families. Zahava Dudnik (Blum), Feme Mittleman, Leah Trachtman, and her son-in-law Professor Howard F. Hirt, labored to reconstruct the street layout of Yustingrad. Dr. Hirt drew the map of the geographical location of Sokolievka - Yustingrad. Leah Trachtman, my sister Alta and our niece Dorothy Kareff supplied information on the life of our people in Yustingrad in the years from 1902 through the Revolution, the Civil War and the pogroms. Harry Dudwick and Dr. John Robboy filled gaps in my memory regarding life in Knyazhe and Uman. Marcia (Trachtman) Sheer assembled the numerous family "trees" into three master charts which served in the construction of the master tree: "The B'nai Khaim in America and Their Progenitors." Geraldine, Rabbi Gordon Kaprov's widow, translated from Yiddish into English some material which we used. Here I must say a word about my wife's contribution to the making of this book. She worked with me at every stage of its construction, from the original planning to the final correction of the manuscript. She set up an inventory of the B'nai Khaim; she helped with the design of the family charts, with the formulation of the questionnaires, and with the tabulation and analysis of the myriads of responses. Her place is rightly on the title page. Joseph M. Gillman Hartsdale, N.Y. March, 1968
