Gersh can be Hersh (or Hirsh)/Tzvi, but it can also be Gershon,
as in the case of my GGF's brother, Gershon Rubenstein from
Bobruisk.

Is it generally the case that in Cyrillic documents the name
Gersh
appears as the equivalent of the Hebrew name Tzvi? (presumably
because
one can't write Hersh, the actual Yiddish equivalent -- no H in
Cyrillic?).

Thank you. Paul Concus
