LEVIN Family - Kopul/Minsk #belarus

Isabel Danforth <danforth@...>

I am looking for information related to my Great Grandfather known as
Haiman Levin.
His immigration paperwork says that he was born in 1855 in Egyumen, Russia
(now Belarus). His eldest children were born in Kopul in 1879 and
1880. The next were born in Minsk in 1881, 1888, and 1889.

He arrived on the ship Furnessia in New York in 1896.

Isaac Levin, my grandfather, Haiman's eldest son's paperwork says that he
was born in Kopul in 1875 and that he arrived on the ship Amsterdam in 1897.

I have not been able to find either of them in Ellis Island
Records. Does anyone have any ideas where I can start searching for
information on the family before they came to the US?

Thank you.
