My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Kadishevitz. The family lived in Kupiskis, but prior to that, her ancestors lived in Anyksciai.

In Lithuania, it was often spelled, Kadyshevich.

When my grandmother and her siblings came to NY, they changed it to Kadish.

Subject: [] Yiddish Names-Kadshevitz Family From Anyksciai, Lithuania #names

My late mother in law left us a box of family history notes regarding her Kadishevitz grandparents and g grandparents who were from the shtetl of Anyksciai, Lithuania. Several of the names in her notes  do not generate any hits when searching the JGen databases nor do they  come up on Ancestry. I have attached a few pages. The notes are based upon her recollections from discussions with her mother Sarah Finn nee Kadishevitz, who was born in Anyksciai circa 1884 and emigrated to the USA in the early 1900s, eventually settling in and/or around Boston.

The specific names we would like help with are:
  • Fatta Yosha/Yosa
  • Mooma Minda
  • Videchki
  • Sana Nacha
Thank you for any help/suggestions.
