Re: Name of Hosenrott #ukraine

Hi Marilyn,

It is most likely a compound name >from two words:
Hosen - which is >from Hoysen - pants, trousers (Yiddish) or a second
possible is >from "Hoyz"- house.
Rott - which is >from Royt - red in Yiddish.

It could be an artificial name or an occupation name for a men's pans
tailor. There are many variations of surname derived >from Hoysen (Gozin,
Govzen, Goyzen, etc.)... or an artificial name >from "Red House"...

All the best,

she
was >from Poland.=A0 I have not been able to find the name HOSENROTT =

name
HOSENROTT?=A0=20
