Looking for relatives of Sophia and Rebekah Krapotskin from Zhabinka #belarus

Sherri Bobish


Have you searched for the Krapotskin girls in The JewishGen Belarus Database?

I suggest a soundex search on the surname, as names get spelled in variant ways in the records.

You can try searching on www.familysearch.org and/or www.ancestry.com
Perhaps you may find immigration records.

You can search Yad Vashem at: https://yvng.yadvashem.org/

Hope this helps,

Hi, I've posted a photo of two sisters that was taken in Zhabinka in 1917.  They were my grandmother’s friends.  The back of the photo card is in Russian and translated it reads:

“For good memory to my good friend Sheina Zubatsky from Sophia and Rebekah Krapotskin, Zhabinka, 31/05/1917

Sheina is my grandmother – Sheindla “Jennie” Zawatsky. She was born in 1895 in Zhabinka; she married Froim Goldberg in 1919 and they immigrated to the USA in 1921.

The two women in the photo are the Krapotskins. I have not had much luck with locating any family. They were most likely sisters and born around the 1895 time frame in Zhabinka.

Any help in locating family would be greatly appreciated
