I am interested in the derivation of the surname "JANKELSOHN". The person
I am interested in was born in Latvia around 1875. The name seems to take
several forms, such as JANKELSON, YANKELSON, IANKELZON.
There is certainly record of the name Jankelsohn in
http://www.liepajajews.org/cem/J.htm which I gather is in Latvia.
