My GGF, Shakhman HOROWITZ and his wife Mary MERCOM HOROWITZ, had
five children -- Harris (my grandfather), David, Chaya, Sura and
Golda. Harris was the only one who immigrated to the U.S. Chaya
and her husband Yosel had a daughter, Bath-Zion, who married the
Rabbi of Zazkov, probably in the late 1800s. Does anyone know the
name of the Zazkov rabbi during that period? And how can I find out
about him -- especially his birth, marriage and death dates and
information about his parents and siblings.
I am also trying to learn more about my great-uncle David HOROWITZ.
According to family lore, he was a journalist -- either the editor
of or a political columnist for a newspaper called the Odessa
Folksblatt. I have been told that the czar closed the paper in 1905
because it was too radical.
Thanks in advance for whatever clues you can provide.
