My maiden name was Herschman. My late Father Oscar Herschman, was born in America. His father was Harry (Zvi, Gregory) Herschman and he came to America at the time of the turn of the century. He came from a family that was originally from Vitebsk (now Belarus) and were decsendents of the Vilna Gaon. I am trying to trace our family back to the Gaon and am missing a link. Perhaps you can help me, or refer me to someone who can.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
Sincerely yours,
Esther (Herschman)Rechtschafner
