I suppose you mean "know" in the genealogical sense.
Even so you could show it to us with Jewishgen Viewmate.
<http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/>
Is there a photographer stamp on the picture?

You should give us more information, Isabel,
like why you think you are connected at all.

Next to date and place,
even if just which century and which continent,
you should give some data about your own tree.

Perhaps this is just her married name, so we should search for a different
birth family name altogether, and would have to know some of those in your
tree.

Even LDS familysearch
<https://familysearch.org/search/>
gives "2,251 results for Name: Sandra Lilly WORTMAN,
in Ancestral File and Pedigree Resource File"

Karen, when you ask "is it possible" in genealogy, the answer is
almost always "yes," particularly regarding names.

Is it possible his middle name could have been given in honor of his
mother's family?

Yes, this is possible. I have this situation in my family who came >from the
Cherkassy District and settled in Fall River, Massachusetts in the early 18
90s. In this situation the wife's maiden name was DUPLANSKY but was shortened
to TOPAL in the US. The immigrant couple had a son in 1903 in Fall River
and gave him the middle name of Topal.

Hi,

I haven't found a forum on research in Russia. I have located my great
grandparents grave in Nizhny Novgorod and would like assistance of
researcher to find living relatives. The list of researchers doesn't
include this part of Russia. I can search the internet and the APG site
and have found a couple, but prefer to use one that is recommended.
Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

Patronymic Interpretation #ukraine

leah9knud@...
 

Dear fellow Odessa researchers

I refer to Ariel's recent posting 'News >from Odessa'
and in particular to Odessa Fond 359 - Jewish Head of Household
integrated into the All Odessa Database.

I downloaded this DB some time ago and translated all the LANDO, KOFMAN
and related family surnames,
but have not yet been able to compare my albeit rough translations with
the official ones now online.

However, I wonder if anyone would be able to interpret the following
KOFMAN patronymic names for me :

Perets and Itsko ben YAKOVLEVICH KOFMAN
Nukhim and Mikhale ben YANKELEVICH KOFMAN
Izrail ben YAKOBOVICH KOFMAN

Perets YAKOVLEVICH KOFMAN was definitely one of my Odessa GGGFs - he was
the Father of my murdered GGM.
I think he probably died in Odessa some time in 1893 (after this 1893
Census was taken) as my GGP's January 1894 Odessa
marriage record only referred to my GGM, Khana Peretsovna KOFMAN, as the
daughter of
Sura KOFMAN, but did not mention her Father's name, apart >from her
Patronymic.

Also my GGPs' first child, my maternal GF, was born in Odessa in
November 1894, and
his Hebrew name was Perets, so he was probably named in memory of his GF.

I wonder if the patronymics YAKOVLEVICH, YANKELEVICH and YAKOBOVICH are
alternatives and therefore
refer to a common ancestor, or could these three patronymic names relate
to different men??

I would appreciate it if anyone could offer any explanation about these
three patronymic names which obviously
derive >from the Hebrew name Yacov (Yacob/Yankel), but could have been
two or three different men.

Many thanks.
