I'm looking for information on my great great grandfather, Abraham
LEVIN. I know that he was born in Russia(Lithuania) and was married
to a woman named either Cherka, Cherna, or Charna (maiden name Cohen
or Lapides). They had 6 children, 4 born in Lithuania (Minnie,
Hattie, Agnes and Joshua) and 2 born in Montreal, Quebec (Mollie and
Jessie). I also know that he had at least one sibling, a sister
named Leah. I also know that he was born in 1877 and died in Montreal
in 1926
The web site of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal at has a number of research guides for Montreal
and Canadian research and is a good place to start for research such
as this. The JGS-Montreal also hold a large number of birth,
marriage, death records as well as tombstone photos.
