JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: English names Samuel/Sam, & their root Hebrew names in Europe #general


I would like to add this to the list:
My father-in-law's name in the USA was Sam/Samuel (Markel)
His parents came >from Lemberg (Galicia) and Lodz (Poland).
They emigrated to Vienna. Sam/Samuel's birth record >from Vienna Austria
shows his first name as Salomon. His name appears as Salomon on the EIDB
manifest. Also, the given name Salomon/Solomon appears on the database
records for the town of Krakow (Galicia) with the family name of Markel.
