YELETS MERCHANTS

On a Russian language site, by VA Zausaylov, he begins a list of merchants, Jews and non-Jews. The list begins at: http://elets-history.ru/jiteli_elica/kupci_elica_na_a/index.htm. First and last names and occupations are included as well as some locations of the merchants' businesses.

A list of some of the Jews or possible Jews are:

Chaim Kaplan, Yankel Krol, Dov Levinson, Joseph Lakin, Malka Leikin, Abraham Livshits, Hershke Segal, Movsho Taitslin, Tepelbaum, Teitelbaum, Hirsch Zeitlin, et al.

Please visit the Yelets site for additional information.
Remember that it is possible to translate foreign language sites by using online translators. A few are briefly described in my post, In The Beginning...
