Subject: Antecedants in Boguslav and surrounding

I am searching for my grandfather's family. He was
Moschkvo GOLUB born
1883, who arrived in UK to settle in 1910 and
became Morris GOLOB. I have just
seen his naturalisation papers (dated 1928) in
which he says he was brought up
in Boguslav. He married in 1907 to Faiga Malka
(Fanny) KRAMORAW at
Procharofka, Poltava. I have not been able to
locate Procharofka. His parents were
Srul and Zissel GOLUB (nee COHEN). All the
spellings are as on the
naturalisation papers.

Morris and Fanny took a trip to New York in 1948/9
to visit her sister and
brother-in-law. I believe they were Sarah and Ben
SHAPIRO, who had a son
Alex. I don't know when they emigrated to the US or
where they lived there though
I suspect it was somewhere in New York state.

I'd appreciate any information re: the family and

Lincolnshire, UK

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your
own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the
researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen
that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a
win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project.
You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our
Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by
Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages
with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections,
there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov
Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian
communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the
JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can
purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only
through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall
flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting
operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall
you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen
benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based
service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it
first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's
expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well
as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these
communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts
to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking
for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this
book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your
children and your

Whatever country is part of your research interests,
please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just
select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You
will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices.
If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book
cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40%
discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many
copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen
Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software,
CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and
you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting
will truly be a win/win

Passover holiday!
