Contradiction in documents #lithuania

"...However a family member who knew
these people testifies that the name they used is
Aharon(Aaronas) and "nobody knows who Avraham is ".

May I assume that he had both names and only by
hazard was one or the other written in the documents?"

It is rather common that the very same person had
different first names in various records. I found in
archival documents siblings whose paternal name was
totally different. It means that their father had
double name. I believe Anat's ancestor had two given
names: Aharon is a Hebrew name, Aaronas is Lithuanian
variation of the SAME name, and Avraham aka
Aba/Abraham was probably the name given him at his
birth but not used in real life.
This is really perfect reference to check given names
variations:

JONISKELIS Research #lithuania

Gilda and Bob Kurtzman <gildak@...>
 

To all the researchers of Joniskelis, Lithuania,

I am beginning a new project for Joniskelis and am asking all researchers
who have roots or family >from the town to contact me it.

After very successfully connecting the Jewish families of Pusalotas, a
neighboring town, I realized that many of the people came >from Jonikelis or
went to Joniskelis, my family being among them. The Pusalotas file
contains, as of today, about 25 families. To my gratification and surprise,
I found that only five were not connected to another family in the town. I
assume the same will hold true for Joniskelis.

The first version of the Pusalotas file was given to the archives and
museums in Lithuania and to the researchers who are finding it fascinating.
They are also finding new family connections.

I am looking forward to hearing >from you and seeing what results this new
project will bring.

My mother's family stemmed >from Jadow, a town about 50 kilometers
northeast of Warsaw. I own a copy of the Jadow yizkor book, but I
am eager to search the civil records. To my dismay, I have learned

Signing with OOO #poland

Gary Mokotoff (Optonline) <garymokotoff@...>
 

It is more likely a person was illiterate when he signed with OOO, not that
they could not sign in Polish (but could write Yiddish). First, for most
Polish Jewish vital records >from Congress Poland, the Jews signed the
records in Yiddish not Polish, so OOO most likely meant they could not sign
in Yiddish either.

There is only one case of a Mokotow signing OOO. It was the case of a man
whose father died when he was nine and he was the only male child. It is
likely he had the responsibility at an early age to provide for his family
and never had a proper Jewish education.
