Norma Brewer asked if I could give an example of the kind of three part
name listed in the Minsk Guberniya register >from 1819. Please note that
my Russian friend has translated as best she can >from faded handwriiten
listings. However, examples of some of the names are: "Ber Benjaminoff,
son of Lazarach" and "Boruch Shmueloff, son of Perchuch."
I noticed that a man listed as "Berko Abramoff, son of Klar__" has a wife
whose name is listed as "Berko Abramova"'s wife. In other listings,
there was a "Itzak Movshe, son of S_______" which appears to be a first
and middle name. At first I thought the second name was a last name,
but so many of them were first names that end in "off" that I didn't feel
they could be last names. In later lists there are names that are
recognizable Jewish last names such as Greenwald and Perlman.
Thanks for your assistance!
