Facial similarities suggest that there is a strong family linkage. We don’t know anything about the original home of the Amdurers but they are included as well.
Amduras, a Latvian form of the name, appeared in the 20th century.
Images allow the trees to have meaning beyond that of just relationships. Between us, we have been researching our common Amdur roots for nearly 50 years.
This group would also include those Amdurs who ventured to Dvinsk, Kamajai, and Rokiskis, as documented by the Pages of Testemony after the Sho'ar.No one in the 18th century censuses has family names. We assume that one Elyakim was our ancestor although we don’t know which one.We also don’t know if this Elyakim made the move to Braslav.Because Russian names traditionally include patronymics (the father’s given names) as well, we also learn the name of earlier generations.From this, we clearly track back to someone named Elyakim who probably was born circa 1735. The 1755 Indura census lists (enumerates) two men with that name, most likely cousins.
