Re: Names and relatives #general

Thank you everyone for your replies!

As far as I know, there aren't any other Philips in the family, but it is
certainly possible that there may have been. I wasn't sure if it was still
acceptable to name a child after a deceased relative if there was also a
living relative with that name. Now I know that it would be. (I suppose
finding names might get a bit tricky otherwise.)

It's looking pretty definite that my Blaustein/Blausten ancestor was,
indeed, originally a Blaustern and was part of the Blaustern family of
Tachau, Bohemia. I'm just trying to figure out the jigsaw puzzle of where
he fits.
