We've been trying to reconstruct a family history for KATZENELLENSON
from Bobruisk. Abraham Katzenellenson, born about 1882, arrived in New York
about 1911. His wife Freda/ Freidel BOLOTNIKOV and 3 daughters, Masha,
Itta, and Haya came 2 years later, about 1913. Abraham's father was Zushe
and his mother Esther. He started off as a cabinet maker and then became a
carriage builder. The family name was changed to NELSON, either here or in
England. His siblings Yudel and Chyennah may have also emigrated to the
United States. His sister Sara married Harry SHAPIRO and apparently came to
New York. The youngest brother, Chaim, born about 1898, was left behind in
Bobruisk. Can you help?
