My mother tells me her maternal grandfather, Louis Shaffer was Leizer
Asher in Hebrew. I know that Leizer is Yiddish. I found Louis'
daughter's Ketuba ( my grandparents ), and saw that his name was written
as Eliezer Asher. My question; is Leizer a kinui for Eliezer or a
Yiddish translation of the name Eliezer, or is there a mistake?
