KUPER/KUPEROV/KUPOR/KUPROV #lithuania


Herbert Lazerow
 

KUPER and KUPEROV were names used alternately by the same people over
the almost-60-year-period 1860-1918 for which we have vital records of the
town of Nezhin Ukraine, a town dominated by the Lubovicher Khasidic movement.
So you should by all means search for KUPEROV, KUPOR and KUPROV as well as
KUPER.
It is not a common name in the town, but it is not rare either. There
are 36 births recorded under that name, or slightly more than 1 birth every
two years.
KUPOR means the same in Russian and in English-- a person who makes
and repairs barrels.
