JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Names: Chanedvarika or Chana D'volka #general


Toby Brief
 

Two family members have referred to an ancestor as either "Chanedvarika"
or "Chana D'volka". This woman would have been born around 1890 in the
Volyn region. I have checked the JG archives, but found no reference to
either name.

Would this name be a diminutive or a nickname for Chana? (There were many
Chana's and Henia's in the family at that time)
Thanks
