Re: Seek name origin Ida JABLONSKI #belarus #russia #names

By coincidence, my paternal grandmother's name was also Ida Yablonsky and she was born in Pruzany. However, she was born about 20 years later than your grandmother - in 1894.  (Her father was Yitzhak Yablonsky and her mother's maiden name was Rosa Selensky).

Not sure if this helps, but when my grandmother Ida came to the US in 1899, her name was listed as Chaie Jablonsky (or maybe Jablausky, it's hard to judge by the manifest).  So, Chaie or Chaya may be a name to look up.

Best of luck with your search,
