First Aliyah from Brest-Litovsk #russia


Harry Auerbach
 

I am looking for information about the First Aliyah, particularly about those who came from Brest-Litovsk at the end of the 19th century. I am trying to find traces of my great-grandmother, whose maiden name was Mirsky, and whose married name was Auerbach, (not sure of her first name, but believe it was Malka). All I know is that she died shortly after she arrived, and her son, my grandfather, spent time in an orphanage in Jerusalem before emigrating to the United States in 1903. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
