My maternal grandparents came to the USA from
Stavishtshe in 1909.Can anyone tell me if the mill
from that time is still visable on Gedalke Lake? Arethere any photo's of it or the jewish sector of the
town >from that time period? Also cemeteries?
The family name is Shumsky, and I recently found out
that my greatgrandmother was murdered by the white
russians during a pogrom.
I would also like to know the name of the Russian
Count that had an estate in the gentile sector of
Stavishtshe, and is the estate still there?
