Middle Name: Hazanoah #courland #latvia


LOUISE HAJDENBERG
 

Hello,

On my Great Grandmother's grave her middle name is listed Chazanoah or
Hazanoah. She came to America >from Talsen Courland in 1891. Her family
seems to have roots >from Lithuania, Kovno Province.

Does this mean daughter of a cantor? If so would someone be called that
if they were not a daughter of a cantor? What other information do you
have about this name? What would be its origins?

Thanks,
Louise Hajdenberg
