  • Name Shoshe Levin 
    • The death certificate for her daughter Rose gave her name as Shophie Lee. However, Lee is not a very likely surname. I spoke directly with Alexander Beider about this. He indicated that the most common Jewish last name in the area that started with the Lee sound was Lewin (Levine). This is the more likely last name. We will have to keep our eyes peeled for more information. Dave Howard, July 2005.
    • I buttonholed Alexander Beider at the Jewish Genealogy Conference in Las Vegas in 2005 and asked him what name Lee might have really been. He pointed out that there was a Jewish person with the last name Lee who won the Nobel Prize. However, he thinks it is most likely her name was Levin since that was such a common surname in the Minsk area.

      Therefore, I have decided to show her name as Levin.
      Dave Howard - June 2006
    • From Alexander Beider's book A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names I have extracted this information under the name Shoshane from the biblical Shin-Vav-Shin-Nun-Heh which in English is Susan. The name is derived from the identical Hebrew common noun meaning lily. This was not a common Ashkeazic gven name and was more commonly used by Christians.

      Shoshane is the standar Yiddish form of the name however Shoshe was commonly used in 19th century Belorussia.
