Belarus SIG #Belarus FEIN (FAJN) Minsk District 1907 Voter List #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

There have been several postings about the surname FEIN >from the Minsk
District. My GGG grandmother was Leba FEIN (FAJN) who married Yosel
TSIVIN. I obtained these names >from the 1838 birth record (found in FHC
film number 1,920,792) of my GG grandfather Moshe Aharon TSIVIN. The
birth record indicates that my GG gf was born in Minsk (city), but I have
not documentation to say whether Leba FEIN and Yosel TSIVIN were born in
Minsk city. Several years ago I contracted with Alexander Beider (author
of "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from The Russian Empire) to provide
me with FEIN names >from the 1907 Minsk District Voter List. I am sure
this list with the members of the Belarus SIG. If some finds a family
member on this list I would be most interested to leaning of this.

Also, if other readers of this group have also obtained names >from
Alexander Beider, I hope you will consider sharing that data on this
discussion group. Perhaps we can add all these names to the All Belarus
Database.
