JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yiddish Name #general


Patricia Adams
 

When I was born I was given an American name (that on my birth certificate)
and a Yiddish name, after a dead relative, as was my sister and other
members of my family.
I do not think this was an unusual practice, but my question is would this
Yiddish name ever have been written on a document, and if so where would
such a document be recorded, if it was?
