JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re English kinuis instead of Polish names? #general

First names of relatives back in Europe were often changed on English
certificates. My own family records show Nathan for Nachum and Morris
for Moshe.

This is also true for American records. There I have Bella for Velka,
and the use of Nathan also to stand for Nachum's father Nachman caused
some confusion for a time!
