Bronshteyns :: Genealogy

Journal by Isabella

This maybe one of those sites where I did not know that I can post... (someone answered me that my queries can be as long as I wish, was it this site because I see that my queries here are very short which otherwise never happens). I don't know whether it will be appropriate to add something to my previous messages but I will discuss something new here, the subject that I paid $100 to one researcher in Kishinev, Moldova to investigate-two months ago but don't have a lot of hopes that it will turn out all right. After posting dozens of queries on numerous geneological websites, I did not receive any replies to my liking, and this is very frustrating.

The subject of this posting is Chaim, Liza, and Hannah Bronshteyns, natives of Moldova, perhaps all three from Beltsy, I know Chaim is, born there in 1915. During the war he relocated to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, a temporary home then to many Hitler-driven Jewish refugees including many members of our own family; that is why, this was the place where Chaim met and married the mother of his three children-Zisel Berishovna Golger of Yampol, Ukraine, one of six children of a rabbi as I was told if her father was really a rabbi (I suppose I had heard that some ancestor of hers worked in a synagogue but I don't know which one specifically).

The couple bore two twin sons-Mark (my father) and Genadiy in 1944 in Tashkent and a daughter, Ludmila, nine years later in Kishinev. All their children chose the fields of a mathematical type, like their parents, and became engineers, my father-an engineer-builder. All three also had families, Mark and Ludmila in 1976-the year when they both had daughters (for Ludmila it was one of her two children, she bore the second in 1987), and Genadiy had his three years ealier by bringing his only child into this world-Rosalia who with her parents relocated to Beer-Sheba, Israel, 16 years ago. Chaim died in 1986, and I don't think neither of his sisters is alive (Hannah married someone from the family of the infamous Romanian revolutioner, Bujor). Zinaida, I, my parents, Ludmila, her family, and her husband's father and sisters with their families relocated to Birmingham, Alabama, United States, in 1990s-shortly after Zisel's two nieces and a nephew with their families made it to the same city but I and my mother recently relocated to Tel-Aviv, Israel with the intention to apply for aliya here, and we are staying in Hotel Imperial in Tel-Aviv, in room 206.

If you know anything about parents of Chaim and his other ancestors and/or have their photographs including photographs of Chaim's childhood and youth, please contact me by email or phone (I will be staying in this hotel till Monday). You can also write to my father in Birmingham:
