Epsztejn and Cemelinska from Byaroza (Bereza) #belarus

Diane Jacobs



Besides the All Belarus Database (which I do not personally find very helpful), there is the

CPSA (Children of Pruzany and Surrounding Areas database which includes Bereza

and then also go to stevemorse.org and check on his links to Bereza.  


Yitzhak Epstein also has family from Bereza and you should be able to get in touch with him

through Jewishgen Family Finder.


There is also the 1993 Kartuz Bereza Yiskor Book and two more books published previously

that should be of interest to you and you can probably find reference to them on Jewishgen,

shtetl links, etc.


My grandfather came from Bereza (Kartuz Bereza) to NYC in 1904 and I know there is information

online and through descdendents that should be helpful to you.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Epsztejn and Cemelinska #belarus




I am doing my family genealogy. And I have found information in line with the “great great grandfather” and “the great great grandmother”.

The “great great grandfather” is called Mowsza Menachem Epsztejn (Мовша Менахемъ ЭПШТЕЙНЪ). He was born in Slonim between the year 1845 and 1850.

The “great great grandmother” is called Szajna-Frajda Cemelinska (Шайна-Фрайда ЦЕМЕЛИНСКАЯ). She was born in Bereza (Bioaroza) between 1852 and 1858.

I know that they did not live all life in these places, since they should have been arrived in Warszawa before 1880 (the birth date of my first brother of my great grandfather)


I would like to know if it is possible to find online database from Belarus Archives or Grodno Province/Slonim Archives. I did not success to find information or data that could guide my search in the Jews census records.


Thank you very much in advance for your help
