Ask the Expert: Jewish Naming Patterns - Tuesday, February 16,
2016 @ 12pm (EST)

Are you trying to understand why your grandfather Mordechai Yehuda
was also known as both Mortka Leib and Max? Our ancestors each had
many different given names and nicknames, in various languages and
alphabets - this can make Jewish genealogical research difficult
and confusing.

In this Ask the Expert session, Warren Blatt, our Managing Director,
will answer questions about the history and patterns of Jewish first
names, and how to recognize your ancestors' names in genealogical
sources. Remember, no question is a bad question!

How this works:
1. Submit your question using the link below.
2. On Tuesday, February 16th, 2016 at 12:00 pm (EST), we will post
your question, along with an answer, on our Facebook page at
www.facebook.com/JewishGen.org .
3. Warren will be online during the session, so if you have a
follow-up question or comment, Warren will be available to respond.
4. When the session is complete, everything will be placed into an
InfoFile.
