JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Herszek (Tzvi) Wigdor CHAMITA #general
I recently learned of another name attached to my maternal grandfather. He
was killed in the Holocaust. I hired a researcher in Poland several weeks
ago who has been doing a fabulous job.
Has anyone ever heard of the name Wigdor? Is that a middle name or is
it a surname??
My 2nd great grandmother was Nena Rokenmacher but on her marriage license to
my great great grandfather Abram Chamita, her name appears as Nena Rokenmacher
I learned >from my researcher and >from the documents he has obtained for me
that sometimes people in Poland were born with 2 last names such as the case
above with Nena and also with my daughters' paternal
great great grandfather Aron J. Chil (aka Bercowicz). He actually
had 2 last names on his birth certificate.
I've never heard of the name Wigdor. Have you?
Thank you in advance.
