Havana, Cuba? My gguncle, Joseph (I believe) Livovich (may have changed to
Leibovitz) owned a leather goods store on Cristo Street in Havana in early
1940's. I understand he was active with the Hevra Kadisha. Any idea how to
research Cuba records? Ship records into Cuba? It was a ship bound for US
that was turned away and then went to Cuba. I emailed the synagogues I
could find. All addresses failed except beth_shalom@..., I however
received no response. Any suggestions? >
