My great-grandfather and great-grandmother and four children
immigrated from Dunilovichi. Their name
was Raichel although it was changed to Rothchild. They came over
from1904-1923. pictured; my great-grandfather as a young man . He
has a cap on that is the same as in the picture dun #12. I've
attached it if you want to put it on the site. His name was Schloime
Raichel.

There are also additional immigration records than what you reflected
on your site from Dunilowitz. There is a record for Schloime Raichel
11/25/1904, Mery Raichel 11/17/1907, Awsaj Rajchel 7/1/1923. The one
that
shows as Minne in 1906 is actually my great-aunt Jenny. They misread
the name.

 Nechama Alperovich ( born in Dunilovichi in 1883) her husband Isidore Meier Engel with two of their children; Regina and Max David.  It must have been taken around 1913 in Antwerp.
 
Nechamah's parents were Shneur Zalman Alperovich who married Rifka Feldman.  Nechamah was the fifth of six children, only one of whom was a boy named Avram.  He was the youngest.  The oldest was Faigele Raize but I am not sure of the names of the others.
 
I know that some of the siblings went to Philadelphia.

Message: Hello,

I am researching my great great grandfather Nosson Nota Engelson who
lived in
DUNILOVICHI circa 1855 - 1914. I am trying to find out what his
profession
was. Can anyone advise on what sources to research?
