JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yiddish-German-English pronunciation? #general


For those lucky enough to be multilingual,

If a shipping line employee in Hamburg wrote an emigre's surname as "CHEININ", can
anyone tell me (phonetically, in American English) how that would have been '
pronounced by the emigre who originated in Riga. I'd also be interested in how it
would likely be spelled in records >from Riga.

Thanks for your help,
Sherri Venditti
