Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Families migrating to Palestine from Kalvarija #lithuania
I've been working on the HA-LEVI ROHALD branch of our family tree
for about 7 years now. I've searched the Internet exclusively and
maintained correspondence with other researchers in Israel. To date,
I've had no luck finding records for the Kalvarija ancestors below:
1. Hanokh Henokh HA-LEVI SHUSHAN Me-Kalvaria

+-2. Rashbah Shlomoh HA-LEVI SHUSHAN Mehaber Bi'ur 'al Ha-Rambam

sp: Shmuel Ha-Levi ROHALD (b.Bef 1860-Safed,Palestine?
