Her Name was Rivka

Breakthrough in my genealogical research! Since my mother, brother, and cousin left Odessa five days ago, I’ve been immersed in research at the State Archives of Odessa. Today I found my grandmother Dina’s birth record!

I now know the names of all my great-grandparents. The missing name was of my great-grandmother from my father’s mother’s side. Here she is in my grandmother’s birth record! Rivka Minsky (her maiden name still remains a mystery). I now also know the name of my great-grandfather Srul’s father: Shulim! And I now know the name of the town they came from: Yuzefpol.
