JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Patronymic forms; Geselev #general


Plutsk <plutsk@...>
 

Is the "-EV" ending the same thing as the "-OV" ending in a patronymic? Is
someone named "Leib Geselev Shapiro" "Leib Shapiro, the son of Gesel"? Do
some names always take the "-EV" patronymic ending and others always the
"-OV" ending?

I do have some names with the "Geselev" patronymic. Is "Gesel" the same
name as "Heschel", with the difference coming >from the substitution of "G"
for "H" in Russian?

Thanks for any help.
