In our Lithuanian homeland there were nine לוין‎ Levine siblings, the children of Meyer and Sarah Levine. Seven of the siblings emigrated together from Lithuania.

Seven of the nine לוין‎ Levine siblings migrated first to Leeds, then Toronto, and finally to California. There were some exceptions. Mattisyohoo Levine remained in Leeds and his descendants remain there today. Pesach Levine and Chana Levine never left Lithuania. Pesach Levine's sons Moshe and Nathan Levine later immigrated directly to California and their wives soon followed. Chana Levine remained and her branch perished in the Holocaust.

This chart merely tabulates dates. For the story then click here. It is unclear how Eliezer Levine is related -- he may have been a tenth sibling or cousin, and his branch had an independent immigration story detailed separately.
