Look, this whole thing is ridiculous. I am not seeking relatives born in 140 C.E. but from more recently, particularly those who died in the Shoa and of whom we have no information. Similarly I am seeking as much information as possible about the Engelman /Raymond/ Payzerson family, of Kiev, who were rotten at maintaining relations.
Have you seen this?
Esther, do you have any profile links to post so people can try and help? They need to be public and in historical time, then they show in the discussion. To post the link just copy and paste from the broswer address bar.
I have family from Kiev as well who emigrated at turn of 20th century. But you have given me no clues in your own tree to see if there are any points of possible convergence. None of the surnames you mention or I would have jumped up & down in joy:)
