What sort
of name is POSNANTECK? Is it a first name, or a last name? Where does it
come from?
According to Bieder, the surname POZNANTEK appeared in the town of Konskie
and references the ornamental name of POZMENTYR -- which refers to a "lace
maker."

Similarly, BIRENZWEIG (or BIRNCWAJG) was also apparant in the town of Konskie.

I'm glad I looked this up because my gut was going to say that POSNANTECK
had something to do with the town of Poznan.

Good luck,
