I've been looking for any leads as to the name Gerts. (A new name to our
family tree). I can't seem to find it anywhere. It is a male name but
I've not seen it before.
If he was >from somewhere in the Russian empire maybe his name was a
misspelling, depending on the lack of the letter H in Russian, of the
name Hertz, in itself a variant of the common name Hirsch (Tzvi in
Hebrew).

Hope this helps
