Re: Assistance with name #ukraine



The letter "G"in Cyrillic is pronounced somewhere between a /g/ and an
/h/ sound. I have seen many names in 19th century vital records that are
written with a leading /G/ on the Russian language side of the ledger
and with aleading/H/ (heh) on the Hebrewledger page.I also have seen
many names that sometimes are written with a leading /G/ in Cyrillic and
other times written with a leading /H/, even in the same family.
