My wife's ggm, Leah Devorah Freedman was the daughter of R. Yaakov
Koppel. It has been suggested that KOPPEL might be a Yiddish equivalent
of Yaakov. Confirmation?
Also, after many years, finally came across the name ONGEIBERG, my
mother's family...in the recent Belarus listing...of 1914 draft
dodgers!!! Anyone else (Besides David Curwin) familiar with that name?
To those who took photographs in Beth El Cemetery....million thanks.
