Hi Fellow Litvaks - An elderly relative (by marriage) has asked me to look
into the origins of his paternal (VIDERS) family. He knows they were
originally VIDIS or VIDES >from Ukmerge, but he wonders where the name
originally came from. He understands that the origin might be Spanish (or
possibly Italian), which could mean that he may be partly Sephardic. I
suggested that he have his DNA tested, so that might help if he decides to
If anyone has any information on the origins of the VIDIS/VIDES family,
please reply to me privately at email@example.com.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
