About Menasha(Nashka) Olin
This is my mother's uncle that she never met and never spoke of -I wonder if that is because she never knew of him. This photo belonged to Menasha Olin's brother my Zaida Joseph Olin and identifies his brother by name as well as he was referred to in a post card sent to a relative in 1912. From his photo I have learned that he was married to Miss. B. Bubis(use of her maiden name would indicate a marriage during Soviet times) and that they had 2 children. My worst fear is that were lost during the holocaust yet so far there have been no records found. This is what keeps me interested in family history- I feel he has a story that needs to be found and remembered. Rosalie Lazar 4/2011 with much thanks to Izzy Olin and Nathen Gabriel for passing on the history of my Zaida having siblings, for the translation of the photo and post card and for the history lesson of Soviet times.
