Brothers Give Parents Different Names #general


Rlberliner@...
 

Perhaps someone can explain this difference in names. As explained in a
previous posting, my Dad, Samuel Leaf, had two brothers, Max Leaf and
Morris Lieberman. I had assumed that my grandmother married a second time
and Uncle Morris was a child of that marriage.

Uncle Morris' death certificate, information given by Uncle Max' daughter,
listed his parents names as Father: Samson LIEBERMAN Mother: Alca Ain

Today, I got my dad's application for social security and he lists his
parents as Father: Samson LEAF Mother: Neome Ain

Is there any way that Neome and Alca could be the same? Maybe one in
Russian and one in Hebrew? Also, as previously mentioned, my brother's
name was Victor Samson. In Hebrew, it was Avigdor Shimshon. We always
knew he was named after Dad's parents.

Any ideas on the different surnames of LEAF and LIEBERMAN?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Sincerely,
Rachelle Leaf Berliner
