Hi Jerry,

Jerychem should refer to the bibilical city of Jericho.
Podenszczyk should be a polish name. I'm not sure if there is a translation.
Pod/Poden means underneath.

Best regards,
Aviv

Jerychem is the Yiddish pronunciation of the Hebrew name Yerocham,   Yerocham appears in the book of Samuel as the father of Elkanah.  It has nothing to do with Jericho.  It is related to the word rachem-mercy.

Podenszczyk = an archaic Russian word for a temporary worker hired (paid?) on "per day" basis.
