    Notes 
    • Isaac Berman, loved his children very much, according to the recollections of his son-in-law, Judah (Jack) Asimov, 1896-1969, who named his first child after Isaac Berman.
      Isaac Berman was a great Talmudic scholar, and Petrovichi residents spoke of him reverently. In an argument, for example, if someone remembered that Reb Isaac Berman had explained the point this way or that, the argument would come to an end -- and this in a town filled with great scholars.

      Judah writes that with his first wife, Isaac Berman had "some sons and a daughter, from which I knew two: David and Uncle Joseph. I have heard about another son, Mordechai."

      He refers to Anna Berman as the "little sister" of Mordechai. Anna Berman was the daughter of Isaac and his second wife, Tamara. Judah writes that Anna had "three brothers all younger than her."

      Judah writes that Joseph Berman left Petrovichi when his younger half sister, Anna, was a baby. Isaac Berman, who apparently died in his 50s, had 8 children, possibly in this order: Unknown daughter, Mordechai, Joseph, David, Anna, Girsh, Natan, unknown son.
