Does anyone have any thoughts on the origins of the surname Liss/Lyss? When I try to search for passenger records, the only suggestions I get are Scandinavian names. My relatives came from Motol, not far from MInsk. ( think Motol was Chaim Weitzman's home town, and I'm sure everyone from the town claims to have known him or his family).
