This request is a 'long shot'.
Am seeking a Jewish Resource/Organization/Society/Shul,etc.
in Poltava, Ukraine where I can possibly place a Search Notice.
Have been attempting unsuccessfully to locate the descendants,
or their fate, of my mother's eldest sister Rachel nee FESTENSTEIN.
Sadly, am not aware of her married surname.
The FESTENSTEIN/FESTENSHTEYN family (& alternative spellings)
left Poltava, Ukraine for England in 1904/5. Rachel who was already
married with 3 or 4 sons remained behind. She corresponded with
my maternal g'father Jacob Daniel FESTENSTEIN (in Yiddish) until
he died in London in 1919. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
If this info might be of help to other Genners, please post to Newsgroup.
Thanking you and Happy Chanukah.
