Ger = convert
Latin H becomes G in Russian and Russian G becomes H in English (sometimes)
Therefore Ger becomes Her,
Harris, probably an ellis Island type of Aglicization of Her....
Researching Max Nochum-Mendel Levin of Bialystok
my family in Lithuania apparently had a name like
Heir...Ger...but when they came to America it was Harris...would anyone
know which surname would be most likely?
