Jewish Seven Footers? Twins?
- I just found out that one woman in my
Rose/Rozovsky family, which lived in Southeastern Belarus and
was probably extensively intermarried with the Rudo,
Dobrin/Dobrinsky, Miller and Sklar families, probably had
7-foot-tall twin sons back in Russia.<br><br>These sons would
have been my 4-times-great uncles. They would have
been the great uncles of the well-known cellists
Leonard Rose and Frank Miller. (Leonard and Frank were
first cousins, and they were also first cousins of my
great-grandmother, Mary Rose/Rozovsky Rudo, 1888-1976.)<br><br>I
assume the uncles probably had some kind of unusual
genetic trait, like acromegaly, or maybe a combination of
some unusual genetic susceptibility along with
exposure to something in the environment that triggered
rapid growth.<br><br>Anyhow, if anyone is still
stopping by here and knows about any giants who lived in
southeastern Belarus, or anywhere else in Europe, for that
matter, I'd love to hear about it.
- I am looking for the surnames ZILBERMAN, KARP and EPSTEIN of
Yarburg, Lithuania and JUDKOWSKY of Serednik, Lithuania.
