I was delighted to find your page and it gave me hope that I may find a trace of my family.
I have hit a brick wall and am not sure where else to turn.

Gershen Rosenberg, a Shochet, married Ida Alman. They were born approximately 1830. They had a son Martin/Mordechai Rosenberg b 1851. Martin married Katherine/Khasia Goldberg b 1852 and had the following children: Solomon/Samuel 1872, Ida D 1878, Julius H 1879, William/Velvel 1880, Etta 1884, Bessie 1885.

The family moved to New England, US between 1890 and 1893.

Every document from this family lists "Wilno" as place of origin except one:  Bessie's marriage record lists birthplace as "Smovgon".  I have researched every Smorgon record I could find without luck. I'm hoping someone might see this who knows something about this family's origin.

Thank you!
