Where do I go from here? #general
I am reasearching ZARCHIN and all of its variants. Jewish Gen has been
instrumental in my education of records researching.
One thing is clear: I received a document that lists this name (ZARKHIN)
as showing up fro the first time in 1834 in Belarus. The newest family
story says that before Belarus, we were in Germany. I am assuming that
the name was only official in 1834 in Belarus and that it might have been
around in some wya, shape or form.
I haven't the slightest idea how to research Germany previous to 1834.
