Belarus SIG #Belarus The KRAINES surname #belarus

Linda Fefferman

Hello to All,

I've been receiving the Belarus SIG for a number of months now,
and would like to say Thank you.

I'm writing at this time because I'm trying to help my dear neighbor
trace her family lineage and I'm hoping one or more of you might be able
to help me. Her name is Anne KRAINES b. 1915 St.Paul, Mn. (USA) who
married "Hy" Herman FIRESTONE (recently deceased). She tells me that
the Firstone surname was originally something like Fierstone.

Anne's parents were Isaac KRAINES b.c. 1886 or earlier and Basha
Devarah (daughter of ___MUELLER (Miller) and Rochella Laiyah (Leah?)).
Isaac and Basha had five children, three born in Brooklyn, New York,
and two in St. Paul, Mn.

And Isaac's parents were Pesach KRAINES b.c. 1807 (he was age 79
at the time of Isaac's birth) and d.c. 1906 age 99. Pesach married
three times, and Isaac was born of the second wife Basha Devarah.
It's believed that Pasach's third wife was Rochelle Laiyah.

With a little searching I have been able to learn that my friends
family came >from Smargon, Vilna. And with that information I was able
to find the following family:

Percy KRAINES b. 1830 Smargon, Vilna, Lthn.; md. 1850 in Smorgon,
Belarus, Ussr / Smargon, Vilna, Lthn. to Deborah ___ b. 1830 Smargon,
Vilna, Lthn.
Mildred Kraines b. 1852 Smargon, Vilna, Lthn.
____ Kraines (male) b. 1854 Smargon, Vilna, Lthn.
Dora Kraines b. 1856 Smargon, Vilna, Lthn
Milly Kraines b. 1862 Shmargon, Vilne, Poland; md. 1879 in
Smorgon, Vilna, Wilenskie, Poland to Moses Levine

I would enjoy hearing >from anyone with information or a connection
to any of the above. And I would greatly appreciate any information or
help you might be able to share with me. Thank you all for your time
and assistance.
