Dear Edna:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There is a short article (in English) about R' Shmuel Mohilever in The
Bialystoker Memorial Book, published by the Bialystoker Center, New York
in 1982. This article does not mention his ancestors or family.
The better source is Pinkos Bialystok, the two volume history of Jewish
Bialystok >from its beginnings through after World War I, written by A.S.
Hershberg and published in New York in 1949 and 1950. The book is
written entirely in Yiddish, but the cover shows a photo of Rabbi
Mohilever. The BIALYGen website at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Yizkor_Books.htm shows the
many libraries where this book can be found, including the following
libraries in New York.
American Jewish Historical Society
Jewish Theological Seminary
New York Public Library
The Bialystoker Center has given permission to reproduce the English
section of the Bialystoker Memorial Book on Ada Holtzman's Zchor
website, http://www.zchor.org/bialystok/bialystok.htm#yizkor. The
scanning has been completed and the articles and images should be posted
to the Zchor website in the near future.
BIALYGen is translating the Table of Contents of both Volumes of Pinkos
Bialystok to English. If we can obtain permission, we will post the
English Table of Contents to the JewishGen Yizkor Book website asking
interested researchers to sponsor the translation of chapters of
interest to them.
