Help. I am caught up in a bit of a confusion. I have severalYes. But I don't think that is what we have here.
2. Is Byszko Burak and Bysk Berkowicz possibly the same person?They are. "Berkowicz" in this case is a patronymic, not a surname. Sarah's
grandfather is Berko.
3. Is Basia z Joelow (or Joelowna) the same person as Bejla JoskownaTo me, it looks like there has been some confusion at some point between
Basia/Bejla and Joel/Josko. My bet is that there is one woman here.
4. Is Bysk a yiddish diminuitive for Binyamin?Evidently.
