Dear Genners,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I don't know if this will help or not. My ggrandmother's name was Menucha
(>from Brestlitovsk) born in 1875. My sister, Myndel, was named after her.
My ggrandmother was called Minnie.

Subject: Menachem Mendel is not Menucha Mindel
I came to the conclusion that the name Mindel, is a very old name that the
Jews used in the Middle ages without any combination like Menachem Mendel
and the suggestion that it come with the combination Menucha Mindel is not
plausible for me because Menucha has nothing to do with Mindel.
