<< Does anybody have any comments about the given named Yale in the very
early 19th century for someone most likely in modern day Belarus. >>
My mother always referred to an older brother as 'Yale' but since there
doesn't seem to be such a name in Yiddish, I wondered about that. When
I started concentrating on her pronunciation, I realized that her brother's
name was probably JOEL, because of the way she pronounced other words with
that vowel sound. Perhaps it's a local thing; she was born in Bialystok.
