I have an old picture, it was probably taken around 1915, of my great-grandfather, Vasily Adinietz (spelling could be Adiniets, Adinets or Adinetz) and his family. The little girl standing on the chair, beside her mother is my grand-mother, Anna Vasilievna Adinietz and she was born on February 5, 1913, I believe in Poland and passed away on September 1, 1980. She was burried at the Gorny Russian Orthoddox Convent cemetary in Jerusalem. Anna had an aunt who was a nun at the Gorny Convent but no one knows her name. Also, no one seems to know the name of Anna's sister or her mother.
I'm trying to find out the history of my family, my grand-mother and her family. Where they came from, where Vasily was born, stationned, the type of medal he has pinned on his uniform, his rank and the origin of the name Adinietz?
I was very little when I saw her, I was probably 2 and then I saw her again when I was 5 years old and I used to call her Tata Anna. She was very secretive about her family or about the past and never told my father anything.
If anyone knows anything about Vasily Adinietz and his family please let me know. Or if you have any suggestions where I might find some information, please let me know as well.
