JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen FW: Need suggestions for alternative surname for HOFFMAN on an 1850's passenger lis #general
Dear David,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Longshot (but if all else fails ...): Have you thought of mistyping or
transcribing errors? G & H are close together (if typed) so maybe (for
example) Goffman ... in some old documents handwritten F was taken for S so
it may be worth trying Gossman, Gussman, etc.

Interested in: FLEXER, GANTOVNIK, OKUN, MUSZKATBLAT, SRAGOWITZ, SVIRSKIS or
SWIRSKY (Panevesz/Panecevysz), & ZILBERMAN (Widze/Vidzy).

I am stumped on this one and have been doing this for 30 years. Even with
the additions of 60 million names on a major online database, I still
can't find the arrival of the following. I have tried all the logical
variations on the HOFFMAN surname
