Romania SIG #Romania KUSHNIR / Emigrant from Romania to Egypt #romania

David Thaler <dathaler@...>

Dear Genners,

I'm trying to locate my wife's g-grandfather Leon (Leib?) KUSHNIR Place Of
Birth and family history in Romania/Bessarabia.
We only know they emigrated to Egypt by the turn of the century, and later
to Jerusalem around 1910. Several branches of the family split shortly after
WWI, some remained in Israel, some moved to the USA and my wife's
grandfather Mark (Mordechai?) KUSHNIR moved to Argentina.

I'm wondering if it was some particularly reason that leads them to Egypt
and I always supposed it was a first step of a Zionist emigration path. I'd
appreciate hearing about other experiences.
