Rivka Schirman <capitetes@...>
 

IF you're interested, the decree demanding that, beginning
with January 1st 1788, each Jew should have a constant
surname is online on the website of Shoreshim
(http://www.shoreshim.org/en/infoEmperorJoseph.asp). Quite
interesting lecture it is, too.

And, while we're at it, they also have an excellent and very
rich databse, searchable online, of documents >from Krakow
and some other towns at
http://www.shoreshim.org/en/dbSearchKrakow.asp.

Good hunt
