Re: Borouchowitz Family, Kovno #lithuania

For my family from Kovna gubernia, the name Aaron is often in Jewishgen listings as Aron and as Orel (Yiddish nickname for Aaron).

I also second looking for listings for all of Kovna gubernia. I have found in ship manifests and other US records that my family members would say they were from Kovna, when they were actually from smaller towns in the gubernia.
