Re: Given name MYSL #general

Dear David and Mrs.

Dad was called "Yussel" by his friends and I think that's where
Joseph came from.

His grandfather on his mother's side was named Uryz, so that is probably
where Uryff and Uryl come in.

We hadn't known that he was named Uryz.

The mystery goes on.

Many thanks again.

On the Canadian manifest, it is Ury?l. Orush and Orl are
both Yiddish nicknames for Aron. So this is our best explanation.
The use of the name Joseph in Canada still can't be explained without more
details.
