I have tried unsuccessfully to find the British birth records of my gr
grandmother and her sister. Their father was >from Poland, and all the
information I have regarding the family gives the last name as Marks. It has
been suggested that the name was actually something else earlier, and
changed to Marks after the daughters' birth. Is Marks a typical name for a
Polish Jew, or is more likely a shortened form of something else ?
