Location: Havana, Cuba family from: Vilna, Dieveniskes, Divenishok, Dziewieniszki, Jevenishok, Devenishki, Dzievianiski
Year: about 1925-30
Comments: The first photo shows Leyzer, Rosa, and their daughter of unknown name. The photo is taken in Cuba, as the studio stamp indicates. Leyzer’s parents are Yosef and Matla, both of unknown last names. This was the second marriage for both Matla and Yosef. Matla had been married before to Yakov Dubin (name variants include Dubinski and Dublianski). A niece from the Matla-Yakov Dubin marriage is seeking to identify the surnames of Yosef, Leyzer, and Rosa. I have checked the Jewish Cemetery at Guanabacoa and I did not see a Leyzer or Rosa (of any surname) matching these dates so most likely the family emigrated off the island.
