My grandmother always said her father's name was Chaimas
Girsas Kamenshchik.
Her sister would refer to the same father as Nehemya Zvi
Kamenshchik.
The family was >from Kovno, Lithuania.

1) Does Nehemya Zvi = Chaimas Girsas?

2) My grandmother emigrated in 1928 and her sister stayed
and survived the Holocaust. Could the difference be that my
grandmother had the period of Lithuanian independence as her
reference point and thus used the Lithuanian version of the
same name?

Thanks,
