Dear all.

My G'G'G'grandmother, Sarah (nee ?), got married to Sinai Trotsky, in the
1820s'/30s' (my G'G'grandmother, Miriam Batia Trotsky-Zalaznik, their
daughter, had her first son in 1856). Sarah was a descendant of Yom Tov
Lipman Halevi Heller, who died in 1654.
Both Sarah and Sinai, were perhaps >from Slonim. Did any one met that name in
Slonim? Another possibility is Berdichev or Zhitomir, in the Ukraine.
