As a last resort, we could see if any of that coursework >from over 30 years

out.

Good luck.

Has anyone used any of the software available on the market to do their
research? My gut tells me it isn't useful for tracing Jewish immigrants
or family members lost in the holocaust but I'd like to know if anyone
has any experience.

Rabbi Shabse Cohen-the Shach #general

Sarah Lasry <s.lasry@...>
 

A number of years ago, I was told by a relative in Israel that we (both he
& I ) are direct descendants of the Shach, Rabbi Shabse Cohen, z"l,
through my maternal grandmother, who came >from Seta, Lithuania. (Shach
being an acronym for his work "Siftei Kohen" on the Shulchan Aruch- Code
of Jewish Law.)

I asked him for pertinent details about the generations , but he couldn't
provide any, except to say that my brother and great-grandfather, both
named Menachem Bentzion, are named after the Shach's son-in-law, Rabbi
Menachem Manis, z"l.

Through interlibrary loan, I obtained a copy of Keter Kehuna, a book
outlining the biograpies and family tree of Rabbi Shabse Kohen, z"l, and
his family.

His daughter, Esther, z"l, married to Menachem Manis, z"l, is the central
character of the true story "The Adopted Princess", by Dr. Marcus Lehman,
published in the 1970s.

In neither book, Keter Kehuna, nor The Adopted Princess, is any mention
given of Esther & Menachem Manis' z"l, children's, grandchildren's....etc.
names.

Can anyone give me an "etza", an idea, as to how to proceed? I want to
know the names of the generations connecting my great-grandfather and the
Shach, z"l.

TIA.

Gorodeya #general

CBS Computer Business Systems LTD. <CBSRAP@...>
 

I am searching for information on Gorodeya, which is now in Belarus. This
town is located on the Minsk-Brest railway near Baranvichy, 58 KM. SW of
Minsk.

The current Belarus spelling is Garadzea. Other variations are Horodzie and
Horodziej.

My family name is FINE, which may have been spelled FAYN, FEYN, or FEJN.

I believe that our name was changed >from POPAK.

I would appreciate any clues to finding out about my family or general
information about this shtetl.
