Morris Chaikin Mogilev, Russia #belarus


Ilan Leibowitz
 

Shalom,

Searching for more information on my Great Grandfather Morris Chaikin who left Russia for England I believe in the mid 1800's. He was married to Chana. They had 4 daughters; Annie(my Grandmother), Leah, Rae, and Celia .Are their records in Russian that might give more detail on the Chaikin family? On Morris's Gravestone it gives A DOV as his father! As a Young man Morris was in  the army(Cossack) because of pressure! I believe he was born in 1860. They lived near The Dneiper River!

Thank You,

Ilan Leibowitz

I cannot answer your question directly but this may narrow your search.  If Morris is part of the family also known as Charkin, there are many indications on Ancestry UK that they came from Yampol/Yampil which is on the current western border of Ukraine.  The river in question is the Dniester.  Coincidentally, I once overheard a conversation in which a member of what I presume is part of your extended family, said that they came from somewhere near the Dneiper river but I think Dniester is more likely.

Good Day,
My wife's grandmother could be related to your family.  Her name was Lena Chaikin, her father was Morris and mother was Fayga.  This family lived in Gomel about 179 km from Mogilev.  Lena was born in 1893 and married Mendl "Max:Gitlin.  The immigrated to the US and lived in St. Louis, Missouri.  

Best,

My earliest Chaikin family member, who actually married into my family, was Tevie Shmuel and he was born about 1831 in Dvinsk, Daugavpils, Latvia.  He raised his family in the Chernigov region of Ukraine.  Tevie died in NYC in 1904; most of his children followed him to the United States.

I have Hankin/Ghenkin/Chaikin etc. from the Mogilev area. there was a connection to the Czar's family. I have the same names used in the family but they would not be the same people as they went directly to the USA and not to Missouri nor London.  Sounds like there could be a connection.  But how?

Perhaps Morris(My Great-Grandfather) had a sibling(Not that I know of) Could also be a connection to his father DOV
