As I'm going through birth certificates, it is very challenging to decipher nicknames from birthnames. If anyone is able to help, I appreciate it:
I was told that my great grandfather, Matthew Levien had a brother named Moses Isreal Levien. Moses married Rosella Smith and they had 7 children: Israel, Gersham, Dotts, Sissie, Kaiser, Lue, and Stell. Problem is, these are all nicknames.
I have found 6 out of 7 of their children's birth certificates:
18 Aug 1896 Mehetabel Gorgeane Levien
Anyone know who is who?
