Dear Mr. Cohen and other friends to whom it may concern,
Shalom >from Yerushalayim,
As you can find in my book "The Litvaks" (p.81) over 1,500 Lithuanian
Jewish families had settled in Kherson and other localities in Southern
Russia. While a large proportion of of these made their living >from rafts
or agriculture,there were others who engaged in petty trade and peddling.
Once settled, they attracted relatives, friends and aquaitances to these
regions.
Have a nice and Kosher Pessach

I have seen many references to Jews going >from Lithuania to other
places in Russia but wonder if movement the other way was common.
