The Lithuanian Names Project #lithuania


The Lithuanian Names Project has stimulated my interest in Jewish
Lithuanian family surnames. When processesing the project name
submission forms, and also when reading Litvaksig, I have come across
numerous surname changes. As we know, this occurs for a number of
reasons ranging >from dodging the draft to immigration.

I would like to put a call out to Litvaksiggers asking for the following
information -

1) town of origin,

2) original surname

3)surname change

4) place where the change took place eg. country,port of entry

5) approximate year

6) any other information regarding the name change

The information should be sent to me privately

Rose Lerer Cohen

and I will enter the information onto a database which I will share
with you in the future.

Thank you very much for your help
Looking forward to hearing >from you
