My grandfather, Edward Rood, was >from Tomaspol, came through England, sailed
on the Canopic to Boston and settled in Chelsea. I am trying to find out
more about his town, Tomaspol, and his family. He said for many years that
the spelling of his last name was not changed when he came here. His father
started a shul in Chelsea, but I do not remember the name of it. I believe
it is now a church.
I would like to know more about his family if I can, so I am reaching out to
anyone who might know about Tomaspol. Thank you
