Jerome Silverbush <jsilverbus@...>

I have found a lot of Silverbush's whose name here is Max. As a matter
of fact it is the most common first name I have found. What would Max
have been called in Galicia?

Another name I am interested in is Berisch. What would Berisch be called
in America?

What about Yitzhak?

Is Chaim the same as Charles?

Is there a book or source on line that would cover this subject?

Sorry if this question has been discussed before, thanks for the help.
