Re: Variations on Solomonski? #names

Michele Lock

I can see why you have asked about the surname ‘Slonimsky’, since Jewishgen’s Unified Database does show records for this surname, when I’ve searched on ‘Sounds Like’ for Solomonsky. I agree with others above, that these two surnames are not the same. And I agree that you should get an image for the record that includes the Solomonski surname. Actually, for whatever country your great grandmother or her children immigrated to, I would try to get all the records that would include the great grandmother’s maiden surname, like marriage and death records of her children, as well as the death record for Sara Solomonski Landau if she immigrated, to confirm that the surname is Solomonski or something similar.

However, on Jewishgen, I do see records that come up for the surname Solomyansky/Solomianski (various spellings), which is an equivalent to Solomonski. Also ‘Sholomiansky’ (various spellings), ‘Zalomanski’ (various spellings), Salomonsky, Zelmansky, etc.

I also see some Slomiansky listings, which might be different from all the Slonimski records.

You can search on the surname with wildcards, like ‘is exactly’ S?l*m*sk*, or also try Z?l*m*sk*, to avoid all the Slonimski records.

Good luck.
