Re: Seeking grandfather's family name #unitedkingdom #lithuania #southafrica

Howard Lewis

Harold - I have a similar problem in that one of my great grandfathers assumed the name Davis Smith when he arrived in UK and his naturalisation papers, while disclosing the forenames of his parents and his town of origin, did not reveal the original family name.

I recommend that you research the records for Annie Lipschitz. If you find her marriage certificate, it should show Aaron’s details. Bialystok covers a wide area but I would focus on the Lipschitz name first. Hope this helps! With all good wishes for 2021 - Howard Lewis (London, UK)
