 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.

I am in search of my mother's family over 15 years. We have found only a handful of written data but, have come across the photo above at your site of a Mr. & Mrs. Alperovitch. As you can see, there is an uncanny resemblance between our youngest son and Mr. Alperovitch. I'd like to be put in touch with Mr. Alperovitch's family and hopefully find some links to my mother's family; or suggestions you would offer in our extremely difficult search. Would you please help me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours truly, Stephen Alpert

#al11: Jean

My late husband was Shneur Zalman, named for his grandfather Shneur Zalman Alperovich. Family lore says that he was a descendant of Shneur Zalman of Lyady. My late husband's grandmother was Nechamah Engel (nee Alperovich - daughter of Shneur Zalman Alperovich) and she went from Lithuania with the Strashun family to Antwerp acting as a 'nanny'. Her sisters went to Philadelphia but as I am not sure of their first names I have never been able to trace them. The young woman on the left, Jean, was born to one of the Alperovich sisters in Philadelphia and the woman on the right is presumably her mother. The only names of which I am certain are Faigle Raize, Nechama and Abram who supposedly remained in Lithuania.

October 2013; HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY TO DR. SHIMON ALPEROVICH (Simonas Alperavi?ius), the inimitably charismatic, Litvak-sharp, ever-witty, inspiringly courageous chair of the Lithuanian Jewish Community from 1992 to early 2013.
A few documents in English translation from recent years at: http://defendinghistory.com/category/shimon-alperovich.
Shimon Alperovich has Vilna Jewish royalty in his blood. He is the great-great grandson of the Vilna scholar and Jewish community leader Shmúel Strashún (1794 - 1872) who was much esteemed among the Christian majority, and is often referred to in Jewish lore as the Rashásh (acronymic from his name). The Rashásh's son, bibliophile Matisyóhu Strashún, became even more famous, as bequeather of the fabled lilbrary that bore his name, after whom a Vilna street was named in 1920.

Memories of My Grandfather: Joseph Bensman
By Stephen J. Bensman

The following is a memoir based upon conversations that I had with my grandfather, Joseph Bensman, during the mid-1960s when we talked together while I spending time in Sheboygan working on my dissertation for the doctorate in Russian history. I am contributing it to the Jewishgen Shtetlinks web pages for Sheboygan, Wisconsin and Lepel, Belorussia, because it contains valuable information on the life of the forbears of the Sheboygan Jews in Russia and on their early days in the United States.

One of the first things I ascertained from my grandfather was the precise location in Russia from where my family originated. I had always suspected that it was the town of Lepel', because family tradition had it that we came from "Leple" and in the locative case in Russian Lepel' becomes Leple. Thus, to say in Russian, "I live in Lepel'", one says, "Ya zhivu v Leple." To ascertain this, I sat my grandfather down with a detailed map of the then Soviet Union and named the towns around Lepel'. It turned out that he knew all the towns around Lepel' for about 25 miles out and then did not know the small towns but did know the big ones like Vitebsk and Minsk.

I had further confirmation of this recently, when the assistant to the Slavic Bibliographer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison wrote me that the name Bensman is specific to the towns of Lepel' and Rechitsa according to the book by Alexander Beider (A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire, Teaneck, NJ, Avotaynu, 1993, p. 128-129). It is a Cohen name deriving from the Yiddish word "benchn" or "to bless" and meaning "one who blesses." Other forms of the name are Benchman and the Russified Bentsman.

I have translated Tsarist encyclopedia articles on Lepel', which are posted on the Web. If one reads them and this, one will see that the encyclopedia articles corroborate what my grandfather told me. These articles also confirm the family story that my great grandfather Aaron Holman emigrated to Sheboygan from "Leple" in the 1880s after losing 500 gold rubles on venture to float a log raft to market as such ventures were a common economic activity in the Lepel' region. On a visit to Israel I found out at the Tel Aviv Museum that the Germans declared the Lepel' region "Judenrein" (Clean of Jews) in 1942-43.
During our conversation, I questioned my grandfather very closely and managed to get a fairly good picture of the Bensmans in Lepel, Russia. They operated a brick kiln. They not only made bricks, but they knocked down houses to salvage bricks. In doing so, they always checked the wooden beams in the houses they destroyed to see if any money had been hidden in the rafters. This was common, since Lepel' lies on the main invasion routes, and people were always having to have to hide. Napoleon's Grand Army passed through Lepel'. The Bensmans burned the rafters to operate the kiln. However, the Bensmans could not make ends meet from just operating the kiln My grandfather had to do other work. Among the jobs he did were the following. First, he ran teams of horses to drag logs out of the forest during the cutting season in winter. Since he was smart, he managed to rig the chains, so that he could drag out two logs instead of the usual one log. A merchant would then buy the logs and smack his mark on it with a special hammer. Second, he farmed. Jews could not own land, so he rented land from the Lepel' municipal council. Third, he worked as a navvy in Vitebsk, digging foundations. Since he was Jewish, he was always given the task of digging where the latrines of former buildings had emptied. Finally, he was a mean horse trader. My grandfather's skill at horse trading was so well known, that when he was drafted in the Russian army, the intention was to assign him to the cavalry so he could buy and sell horses for it. As a general rule, Jews were not put into combat units but were assigned to the quartermaster corps, where their skills as traders, tinkers, tailors, cobblers, etc., were found very useful.

The Bensmans were extremely lower class and uneducated. That is probably why they lost the tradition of being Cohens. They were not able to read or write. I showed my grandfather a Russian newspaper, and he commented that he had seen something like it once. It also brought to mind the local nobleman who had a bike, which amazed the peasants and caused them to laugh when he rode it. My grandfather did not even know his own birth date until the Russian Army told him it when he was summoned to service. My grandfather could speak some Russian heavily influenced by Polish as was common in Belarus, but he did not know the words for directions like north, south, east, west. These were concepts entirely alien to him. He always oriented himself by what directions lay the major towns and cities, and even in the US he gave directions in these terms on where to go fishing. The Bensmans were not like the other Jews, for they were more integrated into the local gentile population than most other Jews. In Russia my grandfather was involved slightly with the Socialist Revolutionaries, who specialized in blowing up Tsarist officials. He told me that the Socialist Revolutionaries used to meet in secret on an island in one of the lakes of the Lepel' district.

From: Ludmila Kopel <ludmilakopel@zip.com.au>

Please find attached a photo of my grandfather Lazar Zalmanowicz Kopelowicz and G. Ch. Alperowicz taken in Odessa in 1916.
On the reverse of the photo: 1916, 8/7. (RUSSIAN TEXT MAY BE READ ABOVE) 1916 8/7. To our friend Ch. Sh. in eternal memory G.(?)Ch. Alperowicz (and) L. Kopelowicz.

I hope someone may recognize G.(I think) Ch. Alperowicz on the photo.
It is possible that he is a relative as my paternal great grandmother was Minnie Alperowicz (not from Vileyka).
She married my grandfather Moshe Isaakowicz Kaganowicz (from Vileyka).

With appreciation for any leads,
Ludmila Kopel

Subject: Alperovich Family Tree

Dear Andi, Sharon has sent me a copy of your email. I'm also your second cousin Sharon's youngest brother Elliot. I thought your work on the family tree incredible especially since much of it was recovered from Belarus.It was very clear except why were Menka's(1805) three siblings different from his father Abram's three children? I recall many stories of Nellie's childhood, her being sent away as a apprentice to a seamstress, her unhappy childhood, stories of Cossacks (she would spit three times to let the evil spirits out) and the killings in the village. Nellie said that during the pogroms a bell would ring and the children would run into the fields and hide in the haystacks. Later they would ring an all clear bell and there would always be dead people in the streets. When she was a  young girl she came to America with two of her sisters and settled in New York worked as a seamstress in a sweat shop, met my grandfather and married at age 16 and moved to Philadelphia. She continued to make most of the clothes for her children but my mother Jeanette stopped wearing them when she became a teenager because the style wasn't modern enough. My mother always commented how well the clothes were made. Nellie even taught me how to knit at age 6 much to the shock of my aunt Florence who thought boys shouldn't do that. When Florence was 75 about 10 years ago I asked her to give me as much history as she could remember. I spoke with her last week but her memory isn't as sharp as it was 10 years ago. Harry Cohen died a few months ago at age 95. There may be differences in spelling from your family tree and the accuracy may not be perfect. I'll also enclose some photos of Nellie and her family. I often wondered what her real name was. In Lithuania they would have called her something else. Her husband Izzy or Isadore often just called her Litvak. Nelllie and Isadore are buried in Mt. Sharon Cemetery outside of Philadelphia not far from my parents Jeanette and Morton.  .
If I ever make it to Israel I would love to meet you. Sharon and I travel every few years, I'll try to convince her to go to Israel with me. I  leave for Vienna on April 29 and we may travel to Slovenia to hike on the sunny side of the Alps. So thanks for all the interesting research.
Your Cousin,  Elliot.

Subject: 1850 Kurenitz Revision List

Dear Sharon,
 
 I'm sending you this Excel file to forward to anyone who might be interested in it.
 
The family of your mother's mother appears in this Excel file, in the column called: REGISTRATION NUMBER. The Registration Number is actually the street address.
 
Your mother's mother, Nellie, I think, was a daughter of Shneur Zalman Alperovich, born in the 1850's, in Kurenets. I got this information in the following way:
From your mother's first cousin from Kansas City, named Rose Pollack (age about 90), who made aliyah to Jerusalem, I learned that HER mother, who was a sister of your mother's mother, came to the USA from a town named Postoff, which I later learned is now called Postawy (Belarus).
From the Lithuanian State Historical Archives, to which I sent a letter, I learned that our great grandfather Shneur Zalman came to Postawy in 1863 (I guess to marry someone from there named Rochel) and by 1874 had a father named Nota (Nathan) and also a son also named Nota (Uncle Nathan from Phila.); I also learned that Shneur Zalman came to Postawy from KURENETS.
On the 1850 Kurenets Revision List, that is an attachment to this email, Shneur Zalman's father Nota lived in Registration Number 139 ; he was born in 1825; his father was Menka (born in 1805).
 
From the family tree of an 80 year old American man named Edward Anders/Alperovich, I learned about our Kurenets Alperovich family, because we are related to this guy Edward. I learned the following:
Menka/Mendel had three siblings: Oser (1798-), Mina (1804), and Sheina (1808-)
Menka's parents were Abram (1750-1827) Alperovich and Rocha Rabinovich (~1740-before 1811)
Abram had three boys: Notka (Nathan, 1774-bef 1825); Israel (Srol, 1776->1850); and Itsko (1781-)
Abram's parents were Anshel (1720-?) Alperovich and a woman from the Alperovich family also born in 1720
On the  1816 and 1834 Kurenets Revision Lists, the above people, our ancestors, lived in Kurenets Registration Numbers 8 and 101.
 
Note that in all the the Revision Lists, Registration Number 1 remains Number 1 all through the years. Remember that these registration numbers are like addresses.
 
Hope you can understand all this!!!
Yours, Andi
PS - Can you tell me in what cemetaries you mother and her mother are buried?

How did the surname Heilprin turn into Alperovich?
The email below is from a world expert in Jewish surnames, in response
to a
question by me.
KR, Andi Alpert Ziegelman----- Original Message -----
From: "Alexandre Beider" <albeider@yahoo.fr>
Hello, The chain of transformations is: Step 1. From Heilbronn to Heilpern.
Area: Western (Germany) or Central (Czech lands)
Europe.
Time: before the 18th century (note that the form
Heilpern is known in Prague in the 17th-18th
centuries) Reasons:
(a) in southern Germany /b/ and /p/ are equivalent and
actually in older documents the town name was
Heilprunn, not Heilbronn (b) the second syllable is not stressed, so the
unstressed vowel turns to /e/ (this phenomenon is
standard to both German and Yiddish) (c) Yiddish /r/ is a very special sound and it can
easily exchange place with neighboring vowels. Step 2. From Heilpern to Halpern
This seems to be limited to Eastern Europe. It
certainly occurred well before the end of the 18th
century because when surnames were adopted at the turn
of the 18th-19th centuries, the form Halpern was
commonly assigned in a large area covering all of
former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Galicia,
Russia, Poland). To obtain such coverage the change
was to occur decades before. Reason: most likely, we deal here with a
Slavonization: the combination "eilp", normal for
German, can not exist in any Slavic language and for
this reason the diphthong "ei" (pronounced as "i" in
English "wine") was simplified to plain /a/.
Unfotunately, I have no Hebrew sources to check at
home, but Neil Rosenstein certainly has necessary
materials permitting to check when and where Jewish
sources start to spell this name without any letter
between the initial "he" and "lamed" (this would be
Halpern) and not with "yod" between them (this would
be Heilpern). Step 3. From Halpern to Alper
Here we clearly deal with late Slavonization that
occurred, most likely, during the mass surname
adoption period (turn of the 18-19th centuries). In Slavic languages final "rn" is impossible. There
are two ways to obtain a word that can be pronounced
by Slavic people:
(a) to drop the final "n" (this gave rise to Halper)
(b) to introduce a vowel between /r/ and /n/. This
gave rise to Halperin and Halperen. The sound /h/ is not present in Russian. To obtain a
Russian word from Halper(n), there are also two ways:
(a) to replace the initial /h/ with /g/, a different
sound, but close enough to /h/. This transliteration
method is traditionally used in Russian to render
foreign words with /h/. For example, in Russian Victor
Hugo turns to Viktor Gyugo, while Hitler becomes
Gitler. This method gave rise to Galper/Galper(i)n.
(b) to drop the initial aspirate /h/ (with a weak
articulation) altogether. This gave rise to
Alper/Alper(i)n. In Polish, the sound /h/ is not known
either, but at least the letter "h" is present in the
alphabet (though it is pronounced as "ch" in Chaim).
For this reason, in Poland and Galicia the forms with
the initial "h" dropped exist but they are
significantly less frequent than in Russia. Step 4. From Alper to Alperovich.
This occurred during the first half of the 19th
century in Lithuania/Belorussia. As explained above,
the surname Alper was assigned at the beginning of the
19th century. It was common in the same area. Since the newly
acquired surnames were not fixed immediately, in some branches of the
Alper families
the ending -ovich (Polish -owicz) was added one-two
generations later, to create a name meaning "son of
(someone called) Alper". The addition of this suffix
was influenced by the fact that the pattern of a
surname ending in -ovich was commonly used in the same
area and thus Alperovich is a kind of "standardized"
form of Alper. In this area, the suffix -ovich was
added not only to given names as it was the case in
other cases (Abramovich, Berkovich etc.). In the Troki
and Vileyka districts (where most numerous Alperovich
lived) we find a large number of names ending in
-ovich drawn from occupations (Reznikovich,
Drukarovich, Glezerovich, Kantorovich etc.); also note
the presence of Kaganovich ( = Cohen + ovich) and
Segalovich in the same area. Cordially,
Alexander Beider

He participated, as a machine-gunner, in an ambush of a German vehicle on the Stoypetz-Nesvitz road. One German was killed and two were injured. Dov and his comrades took food stuffs which were in the vehicle. In the autumn of 1942 he went on a mission with a sabotage group. They were ordered to attack and penetrate the camp of the German garrison in order to steal the food stores. As Dov and his group approached the barbed wire fence surrounding the camp, the Germans opened fire.

Herzl was a member of the Vileyka labor camp Underground. With the help of a non-Jew, he transferred ammunition to the Jews fighting in the forest. He was among those who devised the method of transfer. They would make slits in thick wooden planks and hide the ammunition in the slits. Then the planks would be thrown over the wall of the hospital adjacent to the camp. From there the ammunition found its way to the forest. The Jews called these planks "Revenge Planks".
