You're right, these are not distinctively Jewish forenames.  That means that either they were assimilated, or trying to assimilate, OR that they were not Jewish at all.  Big help!  I have the same problem with some of mine!  I hope you find some more clues in your travels...

Eilleen - thanks for the extract - very interesting.

yn9man - Guess you've found this out already but just in case, I've had a look for the article. The archive on the Lincolnshire Life web site only goes back a couple of years. I have emailed them to ask if it's possible to buy a copy of the article. Will let you know if they get back to me.


Thanks for your response re the web site. I only took a quick look through the Lincolnshire Life web site and planned on getting back in later tonight.

Will wait to hear from you. Thanks again for starting this thread.
