Re: Finding My Grandfather's Siblings From Minsk #belarus


My grandfather left Minsk in 1913 for Montreal. He was from Igumen/Dukora. Listed his name when he immigrated as Boruch Idelzchik. In Canada it became Bennie Adelson. He had a brother named Sruel, but presumably not the same one because his brother died as a teenager in about 1913. His other brother was named Max (Mische?) and came to Canada a bit later.  My understanding is that ultimately he brought most of his many aunts and uncles to Canada. I'm attaching what I know of the family tree and names from Minsk gubernia.
