Please can someone help me.This is really a repeat of an old request.
I am trying to find out what happened to Nechama Ida Sherman who married a Sherenson/Sharenson in Lithuania in late 1800s. In 1904 she sent a" thank you for your help" postcard from TOMSK, W. Siberia , to my great grandfather, her uncle, Elias Todres SHERMAN of NovoAlexandrovsk, . The photo on the postcard is of a beautiful young woman (20-40) with husband and 3 small children (6, 3 and baby in arms I would guess).
I have searched Jewishgen and the BigA and other leading gen websites.
At one point,( maybe 2016-7) I saw the surname Sherenson in the Chabad or communal newsletter from Tomsk but the local leaders replied without any actual information.
I know of Sharensons, indeed my relatives, who settled in Boston , but again have spoken with descendants but hit a brick wall..
Does anyone know of any people with this surname, that I could contact?
Chag Sameach and Shabbat Shalom
Jews were allowed to live near Tomsk at that time if they lived in one of the agricultural communities there. As to their fates, they were not immune from the Stalin purges of the 1930s even if part of an agricultural community.
