According to the 1911 household census, our grandmothers name was Leah Roshinsky who was born in 1873. Where did the name Rachel come from - is this something you remember her being called???

Hi Linda
No idea where it came from she was always called Rachel or Rachel Leah Roochel leah as it sounded in yiddish
The date od birth sounds correct.
