My grandmother's maiden name was SCHERL - PERLMUTTER.
I estimate the time of the incident in about mid 1800s, after formal surnames were adopted.
We have no idea where our PERLMUTTER came from and therefore no idea at all about this PERLMUTTER branch.
My question is: Where could have been a possible place that a Jew earned his living from exporting salt to Russia in mid 1800s,
