Re: Yiddish Names-Kadshevitz Family From Anyksciai, Lithuania #names

David Shapiro

I can't help with these names, but my great grandfather's sister, Ita Beila (or perhaps Beila Ita) SHAPIRO from Anyksciai married Yisroel Yehuda KADISHEVITZ (son of Yechezkel). The couple moved to South Africa, and from there they moved with their daughter Rochel to Palestine and were among the founders of the city of Rechovot. Rochel married Herzl MAKOV. At least one son moved to the US and shortened the name to KADISH and lived first in Westchester County and later in Connecticut.

Also, the last rabbi of Anyksciai was Rabbi Kalonymus KADISHEVITZ, who is quoted in the rabbinical work Zecher Yitzchok.
