According to Hana Shaf-Brener, there were two Malkinson families in Shkud. Yisroel Malkinson made paper boxes for shoes (the shoe industry was very important in Shkud). Yisroel had a wife (whose name Shaf-Brener does not give us) and two daughters, Tsira and Freida.
Shaf-Brener tells us that Yitzak Malkinson, son of Nachum and Hinda, was married to Sarah (Zelikovich, nee Eliashev), daughter of Yitzak and Mara. Yitzak Malkinson owned and operated a large farm. Sarah and Yitzak had two young sons, Nachum and Shloime. There was also an older son, Leib, from Sarah’s previous marriage to Nata Yosef Zelikovich, who drowned in a flood.
According to Jewish Gen’s All Lithuania Revision List Database 3, the Malkinsons were established in Shkud from at least 1816. Among the 40 or so Malkinsons on the Tax and Voters Lists, Sroel Malkinson, son of Shloima, was born 4 July 1888. In 1914, he lived in Mosyadskyaya street, was a trader, and had 10 rubles in a Postal Savings Bank account. It is unclear, however, if this Sroel is the Yisroel Malkinson in the chart above. In the same database, 12-year-old Itsik, son of Nochum, is recorded in 1913 as having one ruble in a Postal Savings Bank account.
Jewish Gen’s Lithuania Marriages database records the marriage of Nochum Malkinson, son of Zalman, to Chana Hinda Lurye in 1895. Both were 25 years old. In 1930, Nochum’s son Abram Itzkik married Sara Zalikovich, both age 32. The record adds, “Husband is a merchant, wife is widow, was born in Siauliai, maiden surname Elisyash.”
As of October 2013, I could find no details on Jewish Gen or Yad Vashem that are unambiguously about Yisroel Malkinson, his wife, or daughters. It’s possible that he typically went by a different first name.
Yad Vashem provides information about Yitzak Malkinson; his wife Sarah (Zelikovich) Malkinson; Sarah’s son Leib Zelikovich, and Nachum and Shloime Malkinson, as well as the following:
Baruch Malkinson was born to Itzchak and Sara. He was a child. Prior to WWII he lived in Skuodas, Lithuania. During the war he was in Skuodas, Lithuania. Baruch was murdered/perished in the Shoah. This information is based on a Page of Testimony. (http://db.yadvashem.org/names/nameDetails.html?itemId=8866605&language=en)
Chaim Malkinson was born to Itzchak and Sara. He was a child. Prior to WWII he lived in Skuodas, Lithuania. During the war he was in Skuodas, Lithuania. Chaim was murdered/perished in the Shoah. This information is based on a Page of Testimony. (http://db.yadvashem.org/names/nameDetails.html?itemId=8866606&language=en)
Esther Zelikovich Malkinson, Sarah’s daughter by her first husband, survived the war in hiding, saved by a Gentile couple from Skuodas.
