I have found in
the archive documents the lists of Jews, registered in
Novomirgorod in 1874. Though it is document of 1874, it
was updated through
the years (til ~1910), and basically for each family registered in
Novomirgorod it has a full family list. Based on this
document and 1858 and 1834
censuses I am proud to tell you some more details on
Heinrich Drobatschewsky family.
1. Heinrich Drobatschewsky (his name was Henekh, but
full canonical Jewish name was Khanekh) was born on
January 25th, 1889. His sisters:
- Khaye-Rokhl, was born on April 2nd, 1891 (Ludya?)
- Royze, was born on May 6th, 1894
- Fanye, was born on May 6th, 1894
- Miryem, was born on April 6th, 1896 (Manya)
Royze and Fanye were twins.
The place of birth of all of them is not known.
2. Parents of Heinrich Drobatschewsky and his sisters
Shlema-Zelman (Shloyme) (1866-?) and Sonja (?-?). They
were married on February 19th, 1888.
3. Grandparents and so on of Heinrich Drobatschewsky:
Heinrich Drobatschewsky <- Shlema-Zelman (1866) <-
Yude-Leyb (1835) <- Ber (1818) <- Yude-Leyb (1798) <-
4. The family name (surname) initially was spelled as
DrUbatschewsky (U sounds like Und in German (=and)
5. The family known origin is shtetl Lypyanka, approximately 10 km from Novomirgorod to
North-West. In that shtetl the family
was registered in 1834-1850 (based on the census).
However in 1851 they re-registered themselves as farmers
in Jewish agricultural colony (I'm working
on reading its name), and in 1870 they re-registered
themselves in Novomirgorod (however in 1874 document it
is mantioned that de-facto they have been
living in Zlatopol (you can read about it on web-page
http://jewua.org/zlatopol/). In fact Zlatopol and
Novomirgorod were neighbor places.
Nowadays Zlatopol is part of
Novomirgorod, so you will not find it on a map as
independent place anymore.
So Drobatschewsky family and Fidelman family comes from
the same place (Zlatopol) in 1870-ies, so very likely
Shlema-Zelman and Sonja have been
married in Zlatopol. But before Zlatopol, Drobatschewsky
lived in shtetl Lypyanka and Fidelman lived in shtetl
Smela/Smila which are also situated
relatively near each other.
