I have been trying to do research on my grandmother Sonya Levin.
I remember my father telling me that she was buried at the Montefiore
cemetery in New York & they have no record of a Sonya Levin buried
there.They were >from Grodno, Poland. Does any one know what the Hebrew
or yiddish equivalent of what Sonya would be? Can you also tell me if
Grodno was a town or Gubernia in the early 1900's ? If so what would the
town be? My father said the area was called White Russia?
Thanks so much for your help!
