My gfather's surname was Myer POLISHOVSKI, later changed to Myer MYERS.
I have been unable to find any other Polishovski's, and do not know
where he came >from in Russia since the information on census records and
naturalisation papers just say Little Russia. My great uncle recently
told us that his father made up the name Polishovski when leaving Russia
so that he would be able to get across the border more easily - my uncle
did not know what his father's name had been previously. Jewish marriage
records state that his hebrew name was Myer HaLevi. Does this mean that
his family name would have been Levi or HaLevi?

If anyone has any idea about this, or perhaps some idea of where he might
have come >from in Russia (Berdichev perhaps?), I would be pleased for
some ideas.

Please reply directly to me at angon@...

thanks
