    Notes 
    • Nettie, who came to the US at age 14, was good at math and had wonderful, thick hair, said her daughter, Ruth. "She was a good seemstress and knitter." Back in Russia, she knitted two pairs of booties for her German Shepherd, "Tzigane," which meant Gypsy in Yiddish or Russian. The dog went out with the booties, and came back without them. "My mother never forgot that," Ruth said.

      Nettie was part of the Scheiner clan "tho her last name was Pollakoff," said Ruth. Her half-sister, Kayla, married a Scheiner. And "Abe's family (Nettie's in-laws) knew the Scheiner family in Europe, and when they came here, they lived near each other."

      Nettie lived on Ludlow in Manhattan when she first arrived. She worked as a hat-maker and went to high school at night, Ruth said.

      From Nettie's niece, Marcelle Pollakoff London: "How we got to Pollakoff from Polliankofsky is that there was a cousin named Max Pollakoff who took (Nettie's brother) Izzy off the boat when he came to America under the name Pollakoff."
