Re: Searching for Riuva/Rivka/Sonia Levine or Levine #russia #belarus

Her name Rubimova may be Rubinov.
Rubimova probably being the feminized version of the name.

Try searching at The JewishGen Belarus Database:

Use a soundex search on surname Rubinov, as the vowels can shift, i.e. Rabinov.
Also could have an "f" or "w" at the end instead of "v," i.e. Rabinof, Rabinow.

I see the name Rubinov in records from Minsk, but also from Gomel in Belarus.  I wonder if the town Goumin on her stone could actually be Gomel?
