About the Moskovits surname

Some Moskovits families - apart from having a more recent ancestor called Mosko, after whom they have fromally been named,what occurs in most of Jewish families - , might trace their origin back to Monshoko alias Mongollo tribe of South America living among or mixed with Zhe peoples,or even ,less likely , sharing origin with them .

More likely may be,that Kamakan peoples once lived and ruled at river Kama wherefor they have preserved the name Kama-K'han . But this Kama may not necessarily be identical with the one in Russia now,but could be a river at Kamasya region too ,where Kangma-Zhe tribe ,named of that river , lives .

As to Mongollo ,seems quite obvious they could somehow be related to numerous Mongol nation in Asia ,in general suposed to have descended from Ar-Gara ,and not from Zhe-Rag-Ha , son of A-Wa-Hayad-Daha .

Some state though that Mongol is a relatively recent name given to his people by Chingis Khan. In this case ,as Yuan dynasty was of Chango language originally ,the word may come from Mapudungun expression 'Monguwal' ,meaning 'Living',and could be replaced in Gothic also with Lebedi .

Monshokos are or were also related to Kathetoy ,who might also have once come from Kathaya via New-Zealand ,perhaps under the leadership of Toi ,wherefrom Kathaya-Toi ethnonym could be derived . Toi in Maori tradition is identical with illja Toca of the Inca Amautas ,who occupied the Holy City in about 264 b.c. corresponding to about 1123 of the now "worldwide" oldest Spanish aera with beginning in 1387 b.c..

It is still possible that Monshokos could indeed be of Zhe origin but not from the ones living continously

in place ,but from those whose ancestors have been staying in Siberia  from ancient times .
