UBERSFELD/OBSTFELD #general


Deborah Wiener <debw@...>
 

Hi all
my paternal great grandfather on his mother's side(i.e. father's maternal
grandfather) name was UBERSFELD. However, previously it was OBSTFELD. Most
of the family seemed to have changed it >from Obstfeld to ubersfeld about
1860. However, I don't believe they all did, and indeed, some reverted to
Obstfeld.
Can anyone shed any light on why the change?
