ירוחם צבי קינסטליך
Maybe anyone hear about a name family נושא חן from shklow?I don't know exactly how to write it.
There is facebook site for Shklov (Jewish Families from Shklov, Belarus) and a researcher who maintains an open google drive with the following lists. Maybe going through them you might find a name similar to that you are looking for.
I have been doing some work to collect and catalogue Shklov genealogical information and make it more accessible for researchers.
In this Google folder you will find a number of lists of Jews from Shklov that I have catalogued. I hope you find the information useful.
I am still working on a few more lists, but in the meantime, the folder includes the following information:
A full list of people buried in the Jewish cemetery in Shklov.
A list of the largest Jewish businesses in Shklov in 1902.
A list of Jews from Shklov mentioned in Mogilevskie Gubernskie Vedomosti in 1907 & 1912.
A list of Jewish public workers from Shklov extracted from Mogilev Gubernia Memory Books published in 1864-1916.
A list of students of the Shklov Jewish Elementary School who studied military gymnastics in 1896/1897.
A list of Jews from Shklov who were given the certificate of a Melamed (teacher) in 1896 and 1900.
A list of Jewish professionals & businessmen from Shklov extracted from Mogilev Gubernia Memory Books published in 1864-1916.
A list of appointed Rabbis from Shklov extracted From Mogilev Gubernia Memory Books published in 1869-1913.
A full list of people buried with the Second Schklover Welfare Society in Beth David Cemetery and Washington Cemetery.
A full list of people buried with the Schklover Independent Benevolent Association in Mount Zion Cemetery.
A list of members of the Schklover Independent Benevolent Association.
A list of Shklov Gedmatch Numbers.
That looks pretty close to me. And I only looked at that one list (because it is the one that I found a potential relative of ours on it)
Is it possible that the last name was changed in Israel to נושא חן? It seems less common to have last names in Hebrew that originated in Europe. If this is the case the original name could have sounded similar or been a translation in Yiddish or another language, or they could have just picked the name because they liked it.
