Personal Facts and Details
Birth 7 December 1882 37 30 Russia

Immigration 20 October 1904 ‎(Age 21)‎ New York, New York, USA


Note: Upon arrival to US, during registration process, Israel's last name was spelled Mukashy. A small change that later made it almost impossible for his relatives to find any information about him. We found his records only in Aug 2020.
Show Details Note: According to family legends, Israel came to USA with his brother Vulf, and later Vulf went to pick up the family. Once there, Vulf did not or was not able to come back.
However, ship manifest indicates that Israel came to US all by himself. So far we have not found any document proving Vulf's presence in US.

For some time Israel was sending gifts and letters to the family, but, because of the tough restrictions inside Soviet Union, likely didn't receive many letters in-return. After the WW2, surviving members of the family lost all contacts with him.
