Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Help with patronymics and cemetery record - Second Correction #ukraine

David Schreiber


I have just found what appears to be a newly entered record in
the JOWBR database for a Mordechai Gokilo which looking at the
Hebrew on the headstone in Israel[jowbr]J_ISRAEL_2_RECNUM88692

and given how uncommon this family of names is, Mordechai
seems to be one of the people in the Kiev Duma database records

Name Patronymic

GUKAJLO, Mordko Khaimov
GUKAJLO, Arij Srulev
GUKAJLO, Alter Mordkov
GUKAJLO, Mordko Khaimov
GUKAILO, Nukhim Moishe

However, the Gokilo record says that Mordechai's father's name
was Yosef Aryeh. The Mordko Gukajlo records say, if I
understand patronymics correctly, that his father was Khaim.
One of the people here is Arij which would seem to be close
to the name Yosef Aryeh, but then this couldn't be Mordechai's
father. My maternal grandfather's records seem to indicate
that his father's name was Chaim Aron, which I suppose could
have made him Mordko's brother, but then there's that
inconsistency with Yosef Aryeh. In any case, all of these
people seem to have been located within a reasonably short
distance of Uman and Buki. Can anyone help me resolve these

Also, is there anyone on the lists who can give me an idea
of how I can get the death records of this Mordechai Gokilo
in Israel to track down who his parents were and possibly to
see if there are any living relatives of his in Israel today?
Thanks in advance and please excuse this lengthy request.
