Family names of the Jews of Lithuania, with Haim Ghiuzeli: In
Lithuania, Jews started adopting family names at the turn of the 19th
century, when the Russian authorities forced the Jews to take family
names. The discussion will focus on the type and meaning of the Jewish
family names documented in Lithuania. Understanding family names is
instrumental for reconstructing family histories.
