Regarding Hebrew Names #galicia


Milton Goldsamt
 

The JewishGen website has a number of info files dealing with Hebrew
Names. The first, a 1998 presentation by Warren Blatt, may be the
most useful to Susan Berkson's recent question. However, more
recently, he gave a very comprehensive talk, perhaps an update of
his 1998 presentation, at the JGS of Greater Washington. He
mentioned that it would be also posted on the JewishGen website.

Those links are the following, particularly the first listed, that
seem useful:
