    And yes if Belarus counts as Lita, then 3/4 Litvak
    If Belarus didn't count as Lita, I'd be in trouble. The reason no one cooked gefilte fish that way in your household is because Belarusian Jews are Litvaks. In fact, Belarusian Jews are arguably more Litvak than those from the Baltics, as Chassidic Belarusian Jews are more likely to use Litvish pronunciations even during prayer and most big Misnoged Yeshives were in Belarus: Brisk, Volozhin, Slutsk, Radun, Mir, Novogrodek(non-bolded also in Belarus). The Vilna Gaon was also born in Belarus - the English wiki gets it wrong. In my main region of Belarus, the Yiddish sounded even more Litvish than in Lithuania.

    I hope I am not highjacking the thread too much with this question.
    Can surnames be of any use when trying to detect which matches on Gedmatch are Yekke, Litvaks or Galitzianer? My grandmother’s whole Jewish family tree was born in France (Rhineland areas and Provenšal Jews from the Pope’s enclave of Comtat Venaissin), yet she often talks of a Latvian ancestor who came to France by foot. I still haven’t been able to find who it was but Gedmatch seems to indicate a lot of Eastern matches for her.

    If read literally, then yes, they can be. However, the name may not be of any help there.
