This is Etta Fishman, my grandmother. She married my grandfather Benya/Benjamin Fishman in 1904. U.S. papers say she was born and married in Lush, Russia, I believe that city was wrong and it is Glusk, or Lutzk or something simiar. My Grandfather's family lived in Bobruisk.It is said that Etta was a school teacher
Etta and Benya had 6 children. She died in Bobruisk around 1920-24. I AM SEEKING ETTA'S BIRTH (MAIDEN) NAME AND/OR ANY INFORMATION ABOUT MY GRANDMOTHER.

3/18/2013 9:53 AM I have Fishman relatives from the Mogilev area. Is there any Peysach Gerts Fishman's or similar names in your family? Any from around Mogilev. I have several Etta's that I have not connected with spouses. Other names are Shapiro and Kharkovsky.
