American Brotherhood of Moghileff'


Search JUF Database(entire JJCD)

The American Brotherhood of Moghileff was founded in 1901 and was finally dissolved in 1967. We were able to digitize much of the 25th Anniversary Book of the brotherhood which we obtained for our Member Jerry Lasin whose wife Adrienne’s family is from Mogileff. The book, which we assume was published around 1926, contains information about the Brotherhood including lists of its members. The functions of the brotherhood were “helping one another in case of illness or need, and coming together now and then for the purpose of recalling the old home town where childhood years were spent.”

We extracted 424 names who were most likely members of the brotherhood.
