Re: Family #germany
Dear Geraldine,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My first thought would be that JACOBSEN has it's roots in Scandinavia, the
name meaning son of Jacob (or Yacov). The name in Eastern Europe would have
had another ending - ovitch, vitch - becoming Yacovitch, Yacovicz,
Jacobovitch or something along those lines, also meaning son of Jacob
(Yacov) in Russian or Latvian.
Hopes this help.
