Israel and Rebecca Schlaffer #bessarabia


Marilyn Feingold
 

My grandfather, Tobias Schlaffer, was born in Camenca on the Dneister River around 1886.  His parents were Abraham and Ida (maiden name Schwade from Vertujeni. )
I am trying to find out about Abraham's parents.  All I know are their names-Israel and Rebecca. I want to find out where they were born and where they are buried. Any suggestions will be helpful.  I believe Israel died about 1889. My grandfather remembers hearing that his grandfather had died and that everyone came out on the street  in Camenca and were upset and crying.  He said the townspeople gave him candy to try and stop his crying.
