Boxer/Boscka #general


David Gardner <dgard@...>
 

I have recently acquired a death certificate for my GGGmother. Her name
is listed as Sophina Boscka (Boxer). The writing is difficult to read.
She was born c1861 and married David Becker in 1882. They were married
in "Russia" and moved to France and then somehow came to the U.S. in the
1880s.

I spoke with a distant cousin who said they were "Litvaks". Does that
mean they were >from Lithuania or Latvia or either ?

Any information on this Becker/Boxer/Boscka connection would be
appreciated.

Thanks to all,


David Gardner M.D. Ph.D.
