Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Elias(h)/Eliyahu connection #lithuania


Eric Smith
 

Ben Forman queried the connection between Eliash and Elihaya
My late GM was Samuel Aaron Claff and his father was known as Rev Elias
Claff >from Shavli

His Hebrew name was Eliyahu as my brother was named after him
Hope this helps
