<x-html><!x-stuff-for-pete base="" src="" id="0" charset=""><HTML><FONT FACE=arial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=2 FAMILY="SANSSERIF" FACE="Arial" LANG="0">I am researching small villages near Czernowitz. One is Kabestie (Cabestie, Kabeshty, Kabena). Others are Kostestie(Kostenitz), Bruskavitz, and Manajestie. Family names are Altman, Ikler, Miller (Mehler), Sherer, and Fessler. Supposedly my great great grandmother Rose Miller Altman was a well-known midwife and the Altmans and Mehlers produced many rabbis. Some Altmans and Millers were listed in the "Tolerated Jewish Farmers in Bukovina in 1808," as already living in Kabestie. Did most Jews come to this area after the 1800's or were most already there? Did most originally come from Poland-Lithuania or directly from Western Europe? Also, I heard that my great great grandfather on my Ikler side was granted land from the Austrian government because he had served in the army for 25 years. Is that possible? I'm looking forward to hearing your replies.
