Re: The Hebrew translation for the name Yetta #names

Kathryn Kanarek James

My (maternal) great grandmother’s English name incensus documents and her death record was Jennie Goldstein. She came to Ellis Island with the name Bebe Goldstein. After years of searching, a volunteer sent me a picture of her gravestone from a NYC cemetery. The “English” name on the gravestone is Baba Goldstein. Her Yiddish name on the gravestone is Keile Golde. My Yiddish name is Keile Beile (Beile was my great-grandmother on my father’s side).
