Belarus SIG #Belarus LITWIN, Rogachev #belarus


My grandmother, Odel, came >from Rogachev, Mogilev and emigrated to Winnipeg
in 1912. Her married name was Chasanova (hence Hasinoff, my family name)
and her maiden name was LITWIN. She was the daughter of Chaim David or
David Chaim (not sure which). She met and married my grandfather, Samuel
and apparently moved to Chichersk where both my father and uncle were born.
My grandfather died in 1912 (of pneumonia). The family was in the fur
business. Other than that we do not have very much information about
her past. What do you know about Rogachev? How large a town was it? What
did people do there?
