Jankiel Elencwajg is the father of Sura-Marjem Elencwajg who was married to Aron Lejbzon. Their son Szaja-Wigdor Lejbzon was married to my great-grandmother's sister Chwalysz (Hulke) Tokar.
Sura and Aron also had a daughter Pinia-Rejzla Lejbzon who married a cousin(?) Echiel Lejbzon. Their oldest son Jankiel/Jan survived the war in Russia but he returned to Biala Podlaska after the war and married a Catholic woman. Jan died in 1995, the last Jew in Biala. His family still lives there. I exchanged a few e-mails with his grandson.
