By an odd set of events I have received a copy of my grandparents
marriage certificate >from a relative.
I was astounded to see that their last names had been switched by an
unknown clerk in the marriage licensing office.
My grandmothers last name which was Blumen was listed as ASARKOF
and my grandfathers last name which was Asarkof was listed as BLOOM.
My father had no idea this switch and change of the names had occurred
but certainly clears up why we have no relatives with the last name of Bloom!
I am now researching the original Asarkewicz, Asarkof(f) and Blumen.
