Oh - We have some odd hints.
One is 'Sandeck Kaplin' against Rissie Lapis - Rosalia Lapes (https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/LB3B-8P8) in her death record.
Also 'Risa Sundock'
Rosalia Lapes died Manhattan 1912
is the Wife of William (Wolf) Lapes died Odessa 1902 - My GG Grandparents
My Great Grandparents are Edmund (also Samuel Lapes or Hyman Lopis) and Phoebe (also Rebecca Lopis)
We have a family lore of them coming from Prague and being Christian and also Phobe Nicols/Nicolai [maybe ref to Nikolaev] as potential maiden names.
We think that Wolf had at least one brother Nathan - who took his family to NYC around 1908.
We also find Lapis in Yad Vashem with many clusters in Ukraine - but throughout the Pale.
More to follow
