According to my husband's maternal grandmother's UK naturalization papers,
she came >from Talner, Kiev, Russia. I am assuming this is Talne or Talnoye,
which is near Uman. The family name is FELDMAN. Morris and Sarah Feldman,
both born in the 1860's went to the UK around 1900. Their children, some of
whom were born in Russia and some in London, included Jane / Jennie (Zelda),
Dan, Millie (Malke?), Esther, Jack (Jacob) and George. I am not sure of
all their Hebrew / Yiddish names.

I have checked the Family Finder listings, and there are many postings for
the name and area. However, some are pre 1997, and its possible that the
contact information has changed. if you have any interest in this family,
please contact me. I am particularly interested in hearing >from anyone in
the UK, as we do not know if anyone came to the US.

There is a book is Yiddish called Der Mames Leichter (My Mother's
Candelabra), a memoir of Talne at the turn of the century. It was
written by a woman named Mashe Feldman and published in Buenos Aires,
1960. She writes about her remembrances when she was a little girl
around 1900-1910, about the hassidic court and relations with the town,
dealings with the authorities, revolutionary activities, etc. It's
available by Interlibrary Loan.

These are the names of that family that appear in the book (the
indentations mark different generations and m. indicates marriage):

         Bobe Yehudit, Bobe Dvora
FELDMAN, Shamai the shokhet m. Feygl
     Motl m. Rosia (father Shmuel) - teacher in Argentina, Dovid -
rabbi in Leipzig, Risl m. Shloyme (grandfather Moishe), Yehudit, Mashe,
Shloyme, Bzalel Moishe, Ben-tsion, Eliahu, Lyova

Other relatives of Shamai FELDMAN:
Shamai's sister Batya
Shamai's brother Ben-tsion
Feygl's brother Meir m. Risl
