There was definitely a community of people from Zaslav in St. Louis. You can go to and search for people who lived in St. Louis, not using anyone's name, but adding Zaslav as an exact key word, and get a starting point for your research. Among other mentions, there are a couple of obituaries online that will furnish names in addition to just the name of the deceased. 

You can also look at the website "Jews in Saint Louis" from the St. Louis Genealogical Society at and the references (but not the article itself) in the Wikipedia article, History of Jewish Americans in St. Louis, at
