Belarus SIG #Belarus Seeking ZARCHIN #belarus

A Waldinger <epic@...>
 

My name is Amy Waldinger. My family with the surname of ZARCHIN is from
Minsk gub., Ossipovichi, specifically. We find very little as a result
of the research done by Don Mopsick for BIG and that led me to believe
that we were originally not >from the Bobruisk area. It is apocryphal
that we may be >from Mogilev. However, ZARCHINs keep popping up all over
Belarus. I can only hope that somebody out there knows of this name.
BTW, in Russian it would be ZARHIN and there is a ZARCHI family in
Brooklyn with my same oral history who dropped the "in".
