I was wondering if anyone knew of the origin of the MALTIANER (or
MOLITANER) surname. The only places I've seen the name recorded are my
g-g grandfather's shtetl of Tulchin near the border of modern-day
Ukraine and Moldova, and in Northern Romania. For the record my g-g
grandfather's name was Abram MALTIANER and he changed it to SPEIGEL in
Boston in 1903.
