what I was told was "Little Vilna". I have subsequently found out
that an uncle immigrated from Zaslav, Belarus. My father always told
me that our surname was a made up name and since my grandfather's
trade was as a cap maker as was that of several of his
relatives, that he was known as "Hittelmacher", i.e. cap maker in
Yiddish....

Subject: [belarus] Lifshitz family from Zaslavl, Rakow, Ivenets, Horodok, and Volozyn

Three different groups of LIFSHITZ family members have learned
recently that we are related. So we have decided to hold a small Lifshitz
family gathering later in November to say hello to each other. From prior
work on the Lifshitz family name there seems to be over 65 groups of
Lifshitz families (see www.benchpost.com/lifshitz).Most of these Lifshitz
family had roots in and around Minsk. Yet, when this website was put
together in 2002, it seems that all these groups of Lifshitz did have clear
links between them .

We have posted the structure of 'our' Lifshitz family at
http://www.kslrfamily.com/LifshitzFamily.htm. The research by Ruth Wilnai
has established a line back to the mid 1700s The central shtetls for this
Lifshtiz group is Zaslavl, Rakow, Ivenets, Horodok, and Volozyn.

Please take a look at the extended tree on the web and see if you can
determine any clear links to your Lifshitz family group.

We would love to add you to the guest list for the event in NY.

Harris; grandson of Sarah Lifshitz Tarr, daughter of Hoshea Lifshitz and Sore
(Axelrad) Lifshitz,

Subject: Israel Pollack

I can't find much information, but I know my Grandfather, Israel Pollack came from Zaslav around 1902. They settled in Massachusetts.
His wife's maiden name was Guralnick, but can't find much on her either.
