Jewish surnames from the Mosel region #france
gregor brand <Gregor.Brand@...>
On my homepage I published an article (in German) about "Mosellaendische
Ortsnamen als juedische Familiennamen". You can find it under the following
It deals with Jewish names >from the 17th and 18th century who were derived >from
the names of villages and towns in the German Mosel region (between Coblence and
Trier). Some of these surnames are still existing today.
Surnames mentioned are for example: BERNKASTEL/BERNCASTEL; SCHWEICH; TRIER;
WITTLICH; TRITEM; KLESSERT; DETZEM; SOBERNHEIM; KELSEN; MEHRING; MEERFELD;
There were of cause different spellings of these names.
With best wishes to all
