Hello, I am looking for information about the name "BIALOSUKENSKI" which is listed as a Polish Jewish name. I am interested in this name because it seems to correspond to my name "BELOSOUKINSKI" which is written this way on French papers. I did not find any other correspondence knowing that my family comes from ODESSA and came to FRANCE in 1917. On the list of victims of the SHOAH figure many assassinated BIALOSUKENSKI. Could you help me confirm that "BELOSOUKINSKI" and "BIALOSUKENSKI" are the same last name? Alas, I was born in France, I never learned Polish and I always thought that I was Russian, because my family comes from ODESSA and that on the French papers appears that my great-grandfather comes from Russia. Thank you for your help and your light.
