Descendants of Abraham Poltorak

Notes: This family tree starts in the province of Volhynia, Russia/Poland, now in Ukraine. Towns involved include Radzivilov (today called Chervonoarmeisk). Family members emigrated to the United States  (New Hampshire, Boston area) and Israel. In America the name Poltorak became Porter. 
  The symbol "+" indicates a marriage, and people "married in" to the Poltorak/Porter line are listed in italics. Married women are listed with their maiden names only.  Children's names are indented underneath their parents' names.  Year of birth and year of death are listed if known; no other personal information will be published on the Web.
