Hello, Jewishgenners. It has been brought to my attention that some families
known by the name of LIVSHITZ >from Ukraine may actually have had their name
spelled/pronounced LIVSHITCH (as in the word KVETCH). My great-great-grandmother is
identified as having a maiden name of Livishitz, but now I wonder about this second
new possibility. I don't really think it shojuld make any significant difference
though in archival research in Ukraine. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I
have seen Lipshutz, Lipshitz, Lifshitz, and Livshitz, but never Livshitch.
