Adolf (Asher) Borinski (12/10/1808 ‑ 09/11/1878)


JRI spells his name Borinsky; I have used Borinski for consistency with subsequent generations and KH's notes. Records of his son Adolf's marriage refer to him by both his German name (Adolf) and by his Hebrew name (Joseph).

A Josef Borinski is mentioned in Geshichte der Stadt Sohrau in O-S as a Sohrau merchant trading in spice and cloth in 1840.
