My maiden name of Hamburg (in Russian, which does not have an "h", it
is known as Gamburg) suggests to me that my family - which as far back
as my grandparents remembered was always based in Minsk in Byelorussia
(Belarus as it is now called) - emigrated >from Germany to Russia.

I have 2 questions of anyone who can help:
1. Does my maiden name indicate that the family originated in Germany?
2. Given that many Sefardi Jews lived in Hamburg, is it stretching
plausibility to guess that our family is of Sefardi origin?

Regards
Isabella Adamowicz (nee Gamburg)
