Family Histories

This page is a starting point to anecdotal family histories for families originating in Shavl.

  • The Schitz/Schultz family were in the leather business in Shavl. Meyer (d. 1910) and Malka (d. 1920) Schitz had several children: Meisha-Reuben, Itsik, Hirsch, Motte-Jose, Chatze-Leib, and Sora-Rive, who married Avrom-Joseph Yoselovitch. Sora-Rive's youngest daughter, Miriam Yoselovitch married Lova Rabinovitch, originally of Mariampol/Vilkovishk.
    • In this series of articles, Lova Rabinovitch tells about his 2 year trek (by foot) from Russia to Israel in 1927-1929, before he met Miriam.
