Kelme #lithuania

Herbert Lazerow

Some Jewish sources use the name Kelm and others
Kelme, which was how my family pronounced it and I
think this is the Yiddish. There seems to be a great
anxiety not to confuse Kelme with Chelm! Is this so?
Are there any Kelmers out there?>
I am a Kelmer (LAZEROVITZ and KESLER families). I have heard it
both ways, but never >from anyone who lived there-- they had all died
before I became interested in genealogy.
