1) Does anyone recognize/know this word ESBOUBEM? It might be Russian or Yiddish or English transliterated of the word?
The writing, as best as I could read, was written by a 99 year old man.
At 2 years old my father was adopted by ?esboubem? family in Pinsk not having a son.
2) any historians around? Where might I even start looking? Russia 1890-1920
Thanks for any possible help.
