JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Sephardim in Austro-Hungary #general

as we've been discussing lately, Ashekenazi Jews who moved to
non-Ashkenazi countries were dubbed there as Ashkenazi, and some
continued to use the surname when returning to Ashkenazi countries.
which was very confusing to me as a 9 year old when my dad explained to
me the difference between Ashkenazim and Sephardim, because one of the
few Sephardic families at our Shul was indeed surnamed Ashekenazi !!!
:o)

interesting as always !!

thanks
