I found the name Minka in some papers. I believe it to be a sister to my
great-grandfather. I am assuming its a Yiddish name. Would anyone know
what its equivalent would be in Hebrew?? Or if it has any variants..
Perhaps its a nickname?
My father had a sister born in 1902 in Tarnopol, Galicia who was called
"Minka". On the passenger manifest in 1921 she was listed as Mina. In the
USA she was always known as Minnie.
