Re: Is Ojzer and Ejzer the same name as Uscher? #general

My father’s name was Usher Harast/Arost, becoming Oscar in the U.S. He had an uncle in Philadelphia also named Usher, and I have found several Jarast relatives in South America named Uscher. I have never found the spellings you posted. My father was from Dumbraveni, Soroki, Bessarabia. HOWEVER, I have recently discovered a large branch from Piotrkow, Poland with that name, spelled Jarost. I’m not an expert on Polish, but since your names include the letter J, perhaps that’s something you might pursue. Happy hunting,
