Does anyone know a place called Zjepjelin in pre-1914 Russia? It could be in
Lithuania or Belarus.

Please let me know

As we know, pre 1914 in the Russian Empire covers most of todays
Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine and a few other territories.

The way i approach this is to begin with the JewishGen Community Pages...doing a
search for "sounds like" zepelin...and clicking the box for pre1914 Russian Empire.

There were 5 responses of towns sounding like Zepelin, with Jewish
populations and institutions... around 1900...i think the most likely is
Izabelin, Belarus 136 miles WSW of Minsk..Also known as Izabelin
[Rus, Pol, Bel], Zabelin [Yid], Azabelin. It was Izabelin in Grodno Gubernya.
I selected this town of the 5 responses because: first, P and B sound alike and
often clerks make errors writing down the spoken word.
second, the yiddish name for the town was Zabelin
third, it had a much higher number of researchers registerred on JGFF for the town.

Hope this helps
ps: we teach a course in using JewishGen and its wonderful databases,
in the fourth quarter of the year...
