Re: My Hebrew Name #names

Here are some possibilities:
1. If your parents belonged to a synagogue, it may have records--not necessarily a record of your birth, but even membership records may list names of children.
2. If you are named after a deceased relative, try to locate that person's tombstone.
3. If you have living older relatives, perhaps they remember.
PLEASE NOTE: Even if you find an answer through this or other methods, if you are seeking this information for a religious purpose such as getting married or divorced, you must inform the officiating rabbi that you are not certain what your name is and tell him how you came to the conclusion that you came to. He will then decide whether to rely on your research for the religious purpose.
Good luck,
