Descendants of Rav Chaim of Volozhin #belarus


Nancy Roberts
 

Hello,

There is a small possibility that Rav Chaim ITZKOVITZ of VOLOZHIN was
my fifth great-grandfather. If the connection is correct, it is
through his daughter, Esther, and granddaughter, Beile Raske
FRIED/FRIEDLAENDER. I am trying to find out whether Beile Raske had a
son named Yehuda Lev, who took or had the surname LAFFER. If so, did
he have a daughter named Musha Beile, known as Bessie in English? She
married Samuel MULWITZ, my great-grandfather.

In other words:
> Rav Chaim ITZKOVITZ of VOLOZHIN
>> Esther ITZKOVITZ FRIED/FRIEDLAENDER
>>>Beile Raske HALEVI
>>>>Yehuda Lev LAFFER
>>>>>Mushe Beile (Bessie) LAFFER MULWITZ

I have searched JewishGen and Geni.com so far (including the geni.com
listings for "The Unbroken Chain"), but I haven't found any
information about Beile's children, other than her daughter Sarah. Any
assistance would be most appreciated.

Thank you,
