It's been over one hundred years since our ancestors began emigrating to America. The earliest record I've found dates to the 1899 arrival of Max Kipilman. Max was a son of Hersz Leib and Cywja Kippelman. The Kippelman family came to the US from Kolki in present day Ukraine. There are links below that will help you to learn more about Kolki.

These candle stick holders were used in Kolki by the Kippelman family to light candles on Shabbat. The candle stick holders would be wrapped in a table cloth and buried next to the house to prevent them from being stolen by soldiers who would come through the town.
