I recently learned that I have a possible maternal (Okun) link to a
member of the Zeide family who were >from Shpola, Ukraine. The
grandmother of a person I have a strong genetic connection to was
Esther Okun Kanfel, according to the automated translation of the
email he sent me in Russian. She died in Moscow about 1938 but I have
learned that after the 17th century Jews were not allowed to live in
Moscow for a long time. I'm not sure when that ended but I'm fairly
certain that my family was not in Moscow by the end of the 17th
century. I therefore suspect that she, and perhaps even her father
Gamshei Okun may have moved there >from elsewhere. Both would have had
to been born in the mid to late 19th century.

Either Gamshei or Esther would appear to be contemporary with my great
grandfather Abraham Okun. My grandfather Simon (Solomon) Okun claimed
to have been born in Poltava in 1874. I have no idea where Abraham was
from but I have cousins who emigrated >from Rogachev, Belarus. I am
thinking that the Okuns and Kanfels might have been in the same place
at some point and that Esther moved to Moscow sometime after she
married a Kanfel.

I have had no luck searching for Gamshei or Esther Okun and searches
on "Kanfel" on Jewishgen have returned an assortment of spellings which
did NOT include that spelling. I suspect I may be being mislead by
the translation program. What other ways might Kanfel appear in
English? I was going to include the original Russian here but
apparently that won't work with Jewishgen's software..

I would appreciate suggestions on what to search for where, as well as
anything more specific that anyone might know about these families.

Thanks,
