My grandfather's family line is KITZES/KITSIS/KITZES/KICIS and other
variations. I have the main tree tracked back to Rabbi Ze'ev Wolf
Kitzes (~1695-1788) who lived in Medzibozh, Ukraine. By the mid
1800's the family had spread out across Bessarabia with families in
KISHINEV, DUMBRAVENI, TIGHINA, SOROCA, and others.
My grandmother's family is KHARAST/HARSAT/AROST >from the area of
DUMBRAVENI and SOROCA. That tree goes back to Markhil KHARAST
Other families that married into these lines include BALABAN,
CHAMUDIS, TARTOFSKY, IOSEFOVICH, GENDELMAN, SHOR, LEIDER, UMENSKY,
KISKIMAN, ZAIDMAN, SUDAK and others.
My family website has trees for all of these names.
