I'm not even sure she was Jewish, but every time I've searched her name it led me to JewishGen (we had always assumed she was Protestant as she left my grandfather in a Protestant orphanage in the 1930s in Northern Ireland when he was 6 years old and he never really spoke about her).
Which other orphanages were there in Northern Ireland at the time?  Did she have any other choice?

Apparently "Goumin" is Ihumen in Yiddish?
Igumen was a district in the Minsk province.
