Searching for RABINOVITCH AND ARON families (from Ovruch, Ukraine and Vilna, Lithuania) #ukraine #lithuania #belarus #russia
Hello! I am searching for my paternal grandfather's side of the family. My great grandparents were called Sora Aron who was from Vilna, Lithuania and David Rabinovitch who was from Ovruch, Ukraine. They had 3 children: Esther Mura who was born in 1900 in Vilna, Lithuania and Marie who was born in 1901 in Minsk, Belarus and my grandfather Michel who was also born in Minsk, Belarus in 1904.
At some point my great grandfather David and his brother Boris Rabinovitch started a Metallurgical company in St. Petersburg, Russia. I don't know the exact year they left Russia if it was before, during or after the Russian Revolution of 1917. I do know that when they left they first went to Berlin, Germany and then by 1922 they moved to Paris.
A genealogist in Russia helped me find my great grandparents marriage records and also found that she had 7 brothers and sisters. I haven't been able (so far) to find any family members on that side of the family.
On the Rabinovitch side, I found a living relative in Israel but unfortunately she's a bit elderly and either has Alzheimer's or Dementia because when I have spoken to her on the phone, she mixes everyone in the family (For example she said her father was her son and her aunt was her mother). She has no children and her husband has passed away so on her side, I can't get any more information.
If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate it!
