With reference to the sentence in Celia's posting: "Michael WOTTITZ: He
married Anna/Heindl ROUBITSCHKIN/ROBITZKY/aka RUBICKY or FIALIN on 12 Dec
1794 in Trebenice."
In the old German language, the name ending "-in" has the same function as
the Czech ending "-ova(')".
Thus ROUBITSCHKIN is (in this case) the daughter (in other cases the
wife/widow) of Mr. ROUBITSCHEK (and FIALIN is the daughter of Mr. FIALA -
probably indicating a name change in 1788!).
The original Czech-Jewish family name ROUBI(')C(^)EK has many German
variants ie ROUBITSCHEK, ROUBITZEK, RAUBITSCHEK, RAUBITZEK, ROBITSCHEK,
ROBITZEK and as we see in this WOTTITZ posting, also ROBITZKY and RUBICKY).
