COHENs and RUDERMANs #general


Liz Miller <lizdmiller@...>
 

Both the COHENs and the RUDERMANs in my family referred to themselves
as "Litvaks." The Rudermans actually came >from Kraysk/Kraisk, Vileika,
Vilna, now Belarus. I am not exactly certain as to where
my Cohens lived yet, but with my great grandparents' names of Aram
and Rosa,perhaps they were sephartic. We are doing DNA testing.

My mother is 94 and definitely confirms the "Litvak" story. Can anyone
explain why this is true when Kraisk was actually in Lithuamia before
1917?

Thank you.
