Jevna MILENKY (born 1798), son of Movsha Meier, married Jenta and had at least two sons, Movsha and Abram (1821), in Ivenets, a village outside of Minsk, Russia (now Belarus). He died in 1837.

Other Milenky families in Ivenets (not yet connected to the above family):

Khatskel MILENKY (1781), son of Mordukh, married Liba, and had children: Nota, Hirsh (1817), and Mirla (1832).


[1] Aaron SKIR (1913) from Minsk, son of Jacob and Rachel nee KOVINSKY (Feiga's daughter from her first marriage), wrote a book "Еврейская духовная культура в Беларуси" (Jewish Spiritual Culture in Belarus), which includes several fascinating anecdotes about Jevna.

Thank you to Yuri Dorn and Maxim Mill of the Jewish Heritage Research Group in Belarus (http://www.jhrgbelarus.org) for their help in uncovering the history of this family.
