because of similar unusual surnames, based on our own family's
research experience. TREIGERs galore showed up unexpectedly in
regional records (Ukraine), yet only one of the 90 is definitely our
family. Others do not have our traditional given names, but form
groups with their own with repeated given names. They might
eventually prove out, but not on what we've got so far.
So, basically, it ain't over the archivist stamps, so to speak. As
Poirot said, assume nothing.

TREIGER (FRAGER), SIROTA, ZEKTSER, BRONSHTEIN, SIBELBERG (sic),
SHVAISBERG/SCHWEISBERG in Ukraine, Bessarabia, Romania
