His original name was Martys Pasemanik, born in Belarus. Would love assistance in translating the Hebrew to identify more about him. His Hebrew name and his father's, etc. Thank you!

While the Israeli/Separdic pronunciation of Matut is correct, the more European/Askanazic pronunciation could also be "Matus". That is fairly close to Matthias or Matthew.

Just another option with which you can work.....Jo
