Unusual Surnames #belarus

Fran Segall asks whether everyone with the same unusual surname in the
same town was related, and whether a particular given name attached to
that surname described a unique person. Not necessarily. We found
someone with my gf's name in a city directory in an adjoining town, but
the profession was wrong and we think he was too young to have
established himself at that time. They could have been cousins, named
after the same person. And there were several families with ourunusual
surname in my gf's part of Belarus with, so far, no apparent relation to us.
