JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help reconciling different name for same person on Ketubah vs Death Certificate #general


Joe Lewis
 

My paternal grandfather's name was Naum Lewinsky. On his Ketubah
written in Hebrew in 1902 (shown on Viewmate below), his father's name
is listed as Ysrael Duber. However, I also have a death certificate
written in Russian in 1904 (also shown on Viewmate) for Naum's father
that says his father's name was Srul-Ber Gershkovich Lewinsky.

At this point, I don't have any other documents indicating Naum's
father's name. Could these names be the same? If so, please explain
how. If not, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
