One of my surname researches is my maternal grandmother's branch, the
SIPERSTEINs of Pinsk. Yesterday I received email >from a woman, Suzy, in
Israel asking whether we might be related, as she knows of no other
SIPERSTEINs in Israel. I learned >from her note that she was >from Hotin
Basarabia and survived - along with her brother and parents - concentration
camps in the Ukraine.

Now, I didn't know where Hotin Basarabia was, and the JewishGen
shtetlseeker database was unavailable. But I know 2 other SIPERSTEIN
researchers thanks to the Jewish Gen Family Finder, and one of them traces
family >from Orinin, near Kamenets-Podolsk, Ukraine. While the exact lines
still need to be traced, it seems that Suzy now has many cousins.

Interestingly, she found me with search engine for
"SIPERSTEIN" because I have a family history website. I'm glad that I've
also registered in the JGFF database.
