My uncle Tevye does not know English nor as far as I know does he have =
email access. Another relative >from Keidan gave me the yizkor book a few =
years ago and on reading it I found a reference to my late father in a =
contribution by his good friend Rabbi Moshe Fishleder of Mexico City. =
When my late mother was in her mid eighties I taped part of her life =
story which included a graphic description of their expulsion during the =
first world war and their trek on a cart to Vilna.
My reference to the Keidan archive was because I think I might have =
located the grave of my great grandfather in the cemetery database and I =
would like to find his marriage and children's births. Two of his =
daughters and one son emigrated to Philadephia and I am in contact with =
part of that family.
My great uncle, Hirshel Bloshtein is also written about a couple of =
times in the yizkor book as a well published Yiddish author. I have in =
my possession about 25 letters in Yiddish and Russian >from him to my =
father covering the period >from 1913 to 1925 and I have just had a =
couple published in the journal of the Oxford Institute of Yiddish =
Studies with a couple of my father's works also.
My sister went with a group to Vilnius and Keidan last year and went to =
the address where she was born in Smilgagass but the house had gone. She =
spoke with a lady in Vilnius who was in the ninth fort with my =
grandmother and her family and was a witness to their selection for =
murder.
