    Dear Dr. Lev-Zion,
    I am researching my great-grandfather and his family – he was definitely living in Dvinsk, lost his first wife there, and also had several children there. His name was Shlomo Rozenberg, and his first wife was Eta-Lea Rozenberg.
    Could you advise me if there are any records available on line which might provide more information regarding Shlomo Rozenberg and his family – as far as I know he had two wives, and about five children. Unfortunately I do not know when he died or where he was buried.
