JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Looking for Bereznitski family from Ruzhany #general
My father's family immigrated >from Ruzhany to Israel (Palestine at that time)
during the 1930's. I'm trying to research the roots of the family in Belarus, but
unfortunately there is no one left >from the family with such information.
Searching the Belarus database results with only 3 people named BEREZNITSKII as
part of the 1858 revision list, however I cannot fully trace them to my family
although I think they are related. There is also some information in the Memorial
Book to the Jewish Community of Ruzhany.
The following people >from my family have immigrated >from Ruzhany to Israel:
Luba Bereznitsky, wife of David and daughter of Zelik- born 1857
Her son, Moshe Alter - born 1887
His wife, Hadasa daughter of Zerach - born 1891 (known to have a
brother who immigrated to the US)
Their children - Chaim Zelik (my gradfather), Arye Leib, David and Chana
The family name spelling varies between Bereznicki in some documents
to Bereznitski in the Jewishgen database.
Any advice or information are highly appreciated!
