Yael,

Have you searched for Limyazov at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp
Do a "fuzziest" search from the drop down menu.

Try searching for old records of surname LAZOFSKY at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/all/

I suggest doing a soundex or phonetic search on the surname.

Are there records from The U.K. for family members that might give their town of birth, i.e. marriage, military, death records?  Perhaps another record may have a better spelling of the town name.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish
