Here are the first 10 newly accepted names >from the list for Lundenburg
(Breclav) in Moravia, dated Sept. 1787: STERNFELD, KUFFNER, SCHWITZER,
STERN, BRUM, FISCHER, NEUBACH, SINGER, MAI,
ALTBACH

Not exactly genealogy, but it would be interesting to know if this is the
same family >from which came Ignatz Kuffner and his son Moritz von Kuffner.
They founded a prosperous brewery in Vienna, that still operates, probably
under different owners. Moritz funded the building of an astronomical
observatory that still exists and operates, after recent refurbishment, in
Vienna - the Kuffner Sternwarte. (www.kuffner.ac.at) Kuffner was apparantly
a business rival of my greatgrandfather who also had a liquor business in
Vienna.
