If there are any DRASNINs (all possible spellings) whose family came >from
Dolginovo, Belarus, please contact me.
I have not been able to find my great grandmother Rachel Leia or Lena Drasnan
Horowicz's death or burial information in almost fifteen years of looking.
She was born in ~1841 in or near Dolginovo (Dolhinow), now Belarus. I do not
know her parents' or siblings names. After her husband Leib Horowicz died in 1905,
she emigrated to the States with her three children Efroim (my grandfather) and
his twin sisters Freide and Dora. They arrived in NYC July 11, 1905.
Lena was a baker in Dolginovo. I have a letter my grandfather sent to her
in 1907 c/o Ginsburg & Klausner, P.O.Box 107, S. Fallsburg Station, NY where I
believe she was working, perhaps in a bakery or for a resort.
I believe she died ~1911 but I don't know where. Efroim's wife and son are
buried in Mt. Hebron Cemetery (Cong Beit Abraham Anshei Dolhinow). Lena's daughter Dora is buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Lena's daughter Freide is buried in Mt. David Cemetery.
Thank you for your suggestions.
