Finding the connection #general


Marilyn Feingold
 

My grandfather had told me he was from Camenca in Moldova.  I have recently encountered a possible relative by the same name but different spelling.   They  lived in Slovakia.  I would need to get a birth certificate for their  possible relative and mine.  They were brothers. I do not have a birth certificate for either. The new family states that the district where they were from was Stara Lubovna. The village was Kamienka. Another place mentioned was Kamensky District in Penza Oblast.
 
I am very excited to have found this new family but I want some documentation to confirm that we are related.   Any suggestions as to how I should proceed will be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail me at marigold8672@....
Thank you!  I am open to hiring a researcher if anyone has any suggestions.

I doubt they were relatives. Camenca, Moldova, is located some 450 miles east of Kamienka, Slovakia. If the last & given names are common Jewish names, there are good chances to find remote people with the same names.

All this places : Moldova, Slovakia, Penza Oblast are far away one from the other  especially the Penza Oblast - check it on the map. If in the Penza Oblast Jewish community exist, it it possible they spread east to Moldova and Slovakia some years ago and the two branches of the family keep the original name with different spelling according to the local way of writing.
