Birth Records For Leurie Michalowitz #records

Shelley Mitchell

Marilyn -

My paternal grandfather, David Michalowski, also told me a big city, like Kiev, but it turns out he was from Tiraspol in Moldava. His half sister, Lena, was born in Dubassary, Russia. Almost everything was found was on Ancestry. But I never found birth certificates anyplace.

I have a feeling that part of that may have to do with “names” in Manifests. Was that the mother’s name? Didn’t know her surname.
The fact that his brother and half siblings arrived with the same surname reassured mr it was the father’s name. Regardless of the sources, I have never found a birth certificate for any of them.

Until early 20th century Dubossary was a shtetl in the Tiraspol uezd, Tiraspol being the uezd capital in the Kherson governorate.  These towns, which are 40 mi apart, are now part of Moldova, although technically in the breakaway region of Transnistria.
