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.Along the way, we have acquired considerable data about many other Amdur families as well.Some of those in our database use that spelling, although they originally were probably just Amdur. The suffixes -sky and -er both mean “from.” Amdursky and Amdurer mean “from Amdur.” The town that Jews called Amdur is Indura (53'27"N / 23'53"E), a small town southeast of Grodno near the western border of Belarus (refer to the page tab above called Amdur Europe for maps).Yiddish speakers frequently transform the N sound into an M.As far as we know, no one assumed the last name of Amdur while still living in Indua.That would have defeated the purpose of distinguishing one from the other.
Amduras, a Latvian form of the name, appeared in the 20th century.
This Web site has been designed to share all of that information.
We hope that Amdurs everywhere will find their families here and will add information to it, in the process enriching everyone’s knowledge.
Virtually all Amdurs who came from what today is Latvia or Lithuania have been shown to be part of the Braslav Amdurs.
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.
They wrote the name Indura as aleph, mem, daleth, resh and pronounced it Amdur.
