I got access to the censuses of the Jewish population of the city of Izmail (1836, 1848, 1854 years). From them I learned that in Izmail settled four families with the surname Edelstein. They were all relatives and all were forced to move out of the city Nikolaev. This city was a seaport on the coast of the Azov Sea. In 1829 Jews were ordered to leave the city, and they move to other places. All Edelstein recorded as settlers from Nikolayev. In the early 19th century to Nikolaev actively resettled Jews from Kurland and Polish territory annexed by the Russian Empire. Moreover, under the terms of resettlement, they should have been traders or artisans. Every Jewish family had to pay for the move to Nikolaev 5 Christians. Thus, in Nikolaev could move only wealthy Jewish families.
Later, I was able to trace the descendants of Edelstein from Izmail - many of they relocated to Odessa and Kherson.
Thank you a lot or your efforts
As you knows families Shmulyian and Edelstain were joined in marriage of Моисей Шмульян - son of Пинхас Шмульян - with Эмилия Шмульян (Эдельштейн) - daughter of Meir-Wolf Edelstein.
You are gran-grand-grandson of Meir-Wolf Edelstein
I am grand-grandson of Беньямин Шмульян brother of Пинхас Шмульян. I was born in Herson and I suppose that there should be Shmulyian history in the city also
