Ruth Kreinik, June 12, 2015: "I received an interesting phone message this afternoon and returned the call from Ms. Akeeba Evans with the Public Administrator Operations, County of Los Angeles regarding Munro Kreinik. I told her I wasn't the 'Ruth Kreinik' she was looking for, didn't know Munro Kreinik (his father was Isidore 'Izzy') but I thought that possibly I could forward her request to you, David, who might be able to shed some light on her search. She said Munro has passed away and is looking for his relatives."

========= Joseph (Yussel Flum) Kreinik's Descendants' Chart
Thanks for responding so promptly. Here 's my latest understanding of the Munro Kreinik lawful intestate heirs:
There appear to be a total of 18 heirs who share in the Estate of Munro J. Kreinik as set forth below.1. Of the 12 grandchildren of Joseph and Sara Kreinik, Munro Kreinik's grandparents, there remain 4 living grandchildren, Lila Probstein, Joseph Marrow, Jacob Kreinik and Dorothy Walker who are lawful heirs.
2. Then passing to the next generation, the 8 deceased grandchildren of Joseph and Sarah Kreinik are Stanley Levin, Gladys Kreinik, Coralee Leveen, Donald Daniels, James Daniels, Valerie Rout, Monroe Kreinik and Carol Kreinik. Of those 8, only 4: Stanley Levin, James Daniels, Valerie Rout and Coralee Leveen had children.
3. Those 8 deceased grandchildren were survived by 8 living great grandchildren who inherit in their place. Those eight living great grandchildren are Jeffrey Levin (son of grandchild, Stanley Levin), Andrew Daniels (son of grandchild , James Daniels), Robert, William Christopher and Romanie Rout, (children of grandchild, Valerie Rout) and Judith Bell, Deborah Leveen and Harriet Leveen, (children of grandchild Coralee Leveen), all 8 of whom are lawful heirs.
4. Then passing to the next generation, there are 2 living great great grandchildren of deceased great grandchild, Debbie Levin, (daughter of deceased grandchild, Stanley Levin). They are Stacy Ann Neves and Shane A. Corso, both of whom are lawful heirs.
I have no information on the family tree of Munro Kreinik's mother's parents -his maternal grandparents - except that I presume that his mother's parents (Goldman ?) had a daughter in addition to Munro's mother and that daughter had grandchildren or great grandchildren named Vikki Benkel and her brother Andrew Benkel and Kevin Cutler and his brother Greg Cutler. Those last four named appear to be lawful heirs. I don't know if Munro's mother's parents had any other children in addition to Munro's mother and her sister who might also be lawful heirs.
Thus, the total number of lawful intestate heirs of Munro Kreinik appear to be 18 as listed on Amended Attachment 8 to the Petition for Letters of Special Administration except that one of the heirs is erroneously listed there - Stanley Kreinik - whose name is not on any of my Kreinik family trees - and one not listed who should be listed in place of Stanley Kreinik is Jacob Kreinik who is a son of Sol Kreinik.
