Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Does Girsha = Girsh (Hirsh) in translated records? #lithuania


I found a record that relates to my family, and the father's name
is shown as "Girsha". Is this a variant of the name Girsh/Hirsh
in the mid-1800's?

There is another branch of the family that descended >from Gershon
whose name is sometimes spelled "Girshon" in the translated records.
Hirsh/Girsh and Gershon were brothers. I don't want to mix up these
two families.

Please advise? Thanks,
