Palevsky: A Genealogical Study
Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED Palevsky genealogy website! Please take a look around, check out what's here, and let us know what you think! Also, if you register on the website (free!), we can give you access to more information about your family branch than is currently available on the public site.
Palevsky is a surname that appears to have originated within the Jewish population of the Kobrin region of present-day Belarus. Today, there are Palevsky families throughout the United States, as well as in at least Israel, England, Canada, Argentina and Russia. Being that most of the Palevsky families are from the same small region, one can theorize that they all descend from a common ancestor. However, this remains to be proven.
This website was developed to promote the single-name genealogical study of the Palevsky surname. We're attempting to contact all the Palevsky families that we can find and invite them to contribute information about their Palevsky ancestors. We also hope that Palevsky families who are currently unknown to us will find their way to this website and eagerly contribute information about their own Palevsky ancestors. If the name Palevsky appears anywhere in your family tree, even if it's someone who married into your family, we urge you to contact us. In genealogy, we often find that one seemingly insignificant clue can lead to huge breakthroughs, so the more information we get, the more successful this study will be.
