Belarus SIG #Belarus "Jack" Equivalent in Yiddish and Russian #belarus


A Falkin <afalkin@...>
 

I just received a reply >from my request to the Social Security Admin for a
Social Security application, and the father of the applicant is listed as
having the first name "Jack". I am sure that this was not Jack's given name
(in Minsk during the early to mid 1800's).

Does anyone know what a Yiddish, or Hebrew, or Russian equivalent to the
first name Jack may be? Thank you in advance for your help!

I can be reached at afalkin@speakeasy.org
Thank you!
