My mother's parents immigrated from then-Russia to the United States before World War I. My father's grandparents immigrated, also from the Russian Pale, in the late 1800s.
These links details the genealogy of four families:
Siperstein (Tsipershtein/Cziperstein) of Pinsk, Minsk Gubernia, Belarus
Draikin of Kherson, Odessa province, Ukraine
Hurwich (Hurwitz) of Kaunas, Lithuania
Brazy of Tukums, Latvia
I married into the Cartan family. The Cartan genealogy is on my husband's website.
Genealogy, by its nature, is a work-in-progress. I will update this site as more information becomes available.
