STEING / STEINGA in Dvinsk: 2 guys with same name, which is the husband? #latvia
The "Jewish Families of Dvinsk" database on Jewishgen lists:
STEING / STEINGA, Abram, 44 in 1882, son of Leiba, residence and
STEING / STEINGA, Abram, 41 in 1876, son of Schaya, to Preili in 1877,
residence Preili, origin Daugavpils.
STEING / STEINGA, Hasa, 33 in 1882, Second wife of Abram; to Preili in
1877, residence and origin Daugavpils.
STEING / STEINGA, Scheina Touba, 31 in 1876, First wife of Abram; to
Preili in 1877, residence Preili, origin Daugavpils.
Which of the two men named Abram was married to Hasa and and Scheina
Touba? Was it the son of Leiba or the son of Schaya? In other words,
would Hasa's child''s paternal grandfather be Leib or Schaya?
Argument in favor of Leib:
Christine Usdin's website used to show a birth in 1895 to a father
named Abram-Yankel Leibovich SHTEINGA and a mother named Khasa
Zusmanovna GLIK. I believe Khasa is Hasa. Leibovich means son of
Leib. Therefore, Hasa's husband's father was Leib. (If you can read
Cyrillic, then you can view a scan of the original record is at

on the left side, third entry >from the top, record number 19.)
Argument in favor of Schaya:
Schaya's son and both wives are reported to have gone to Preili in
1877. Leib's son seems to have stay in Dvinsk/Daugavpils. This would
imply that the husband was Schaya's son, not Leib's son.
I have resolved the question on which I wrote last night.
The All Russia 1897 Census lists STENGIN, Hasja, wife of Abram at the
same address as STENGIN, Abram, son of Leib.
This conclusively establishes that Hasja was married to the son of
Leib and not the son of Schaya.
