U.S. line originating in the city of Minsk, (Minsk guberniya)

Based on information from Ellis Island records, the U.S. Census, and Social Security (SSDI and SS-5 forms) collected by Stew and Gregory Cherlin. Descendants of Samuel from a tree constructed by Stanley Blum and Louise Ann Cotner.

Ida and Isidor entered under the name Cirlin and the family used the spellings Cherlin and Chirlin. Samuel and Charles filled out the SS-5 form two weeks apart, as Samuel Chirlin and Charles Cherlin; in the 1910 census the name is given as Cherlin.

The family lived in New York, later Florida (after retirement?).

Rowno/Israel Line

Rowno is modern Rivne.


Derazne/Israel Line

Source: Rabbi Gorr, Jerusalem, ca. 1986, via Carlton Brooks. This family is not attested separately on Yad Vashem. We do not have records as to how this was originally spelled. Typically the Hebrew spelling corresponds to Tserlin or Tsirlin, and Rabbi Gorr refers to all of these as Cherlin in his correspondence. (He is more precise with the spelling of first names, but we sometimes "westernize" some of his spellings.)

Derazne is close to Kostopol and Rowno.


Cherlin Family: Shomova/Israel Line

This appears to be Szumowo

Shomova is close to Kostopol and Rowno.

Dokshitzy (Doksycy) Line: Cherlin

There are many listings given separately under Tsirlin and variants (Cirlin, Cyrlin, Zirlin).

These are from Dokshitzy and possibly also Galubichi. They settled mostly in Israel but at least one went to England (Levin).

In addition, there is a Henry Cherlin from Dokshitzy buried in Mount Zion Cemetery.
