I am looking for information on Halop family members that lived in New York prior to 1913 and any members of the Halop/Holob family that may still reside in Nesvig or Minsk. My grandmother Christina Halop Shamkin arrived in Ellis Island from Russia with her sister Helena Martinkof, brother Pawel Halop and her husband Nikita Shamkin in March of 1913. I was told she had family already living in NY when she arrived. She also left a sister behind in Belarus. I do not know the sister's name. He father's name may have been Basil Holub / Halop. Thank You.
