Hello, I found some records for Ojzer Bleich and Ejzer Bleich. My
great-grandfather was Uscher Bleich. Is Ojzer and Ejzer the same
name as Uscher?
Dear George,
Ejzer {meaning help in Hebrew) and Ojzer are the same name, spelled
different. Usher is the hebrew Asher (meaning blessed or fortunate), but
with an Askenazi prononciation.
