I am trying to confirm my maternal great great grandmother's maiden
name. She left Novarodok (Europe) during the second half of the 19th
cent. as a widow from Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ, with 4 orphans and
eventually landed in New Haven, Ct. She supposedly married at least
once more (LAZAROFF of London).
Her maiden name may have been HOROWITZ as there is a strong assumption
of family connections to HOROWITZs of Novarodok (or Minsk) but I have
not been able to confirm this.
Would appreciate those involved in HOROWITZ family tree if they can
look into the above. Its been suggested I do a DNA test but in Israel
it's problematic for halachic issues.
