Re: First Name Iser #general
I just wanted to observe that my gfather was named Anshel, which was his
Yiddish name. His Hebrew name was Usher. He was called Anshel Usher, but
referred to as Anshel in all correspondance. Your spelling and mine might not
be similar, but Horodenka was not far >from Rusow, and my uncle married a young
lady >from Horodenka in 1880, and lived in Rusow, which is 5km >from Snyatyn.
Hope this has helped.
