Re: Jewish and non-Jewish families sharing the same last name: LEWAK #belarus

My gggfather Boruch TRUMPER lived and died in Mstibovo, Volkovysk.
I have found a lot of non-Jewish people surnamed TRUMPER around
the world, but a few of Jewish ones. Also I have not found any
(except one) Trumper searching in All Belarusian Database.

I guess some migration history involving Great Britain and Holland
to Lithuania, but I have not proofs.

May be the mystery of same surnames in Jewish and non-Jewish people
is one of the several reasons that help us to understand how after
more than 2000 years of persecution we are alive, and trying to dive
in our past.

southern Belarus. The distance between Drohiczyn and Lvov seems to
be about 150 miles.
