This is a long shot. I know very little about my father (alav hashalom)'s
family. He and his siblings lived in Lutsk and Kolk at the beginning of the
20th century. I heard that as a teenager, he would spend time in the summer at
his aunt's place in Odessa. On the ship manifest, in the space for nearest
relative in the old country, it says: "Aunt Basia Menink, Odessa, Russia,
Spitaljna 57". I haven't found records for that last name anywhere. If anyone
knows anything that would shed light on this Basia Menink, I would be grateful.

Avigdor Mednick married Basia Opendack.

"Mednick" sounds far more probable than "Menink"
