Klepperle / Klepplerer #austria-czech

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

On row 125 of the Vienna marriage record that appears in View Mate 6526
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6526
Is the marriage of Eduard LAUFER to Francisca KLEPPERLE.
However, in the far right columns the surname is spelt KLEPPLERE
or KLEPPLERER

I am aware that spellings do change over time and place, but to find
different spellings in the same document is a bit surprising to me.
At first I thought this was a mere clerical error, with the official
placing the L in the wrong location in one instance. More recently, my
attention was drawn to an entry in the online Vienna Jewish cemetery
database that shows a Rosalia S. KLEPERLE-KLEPERER buried on 20/02/1882 at
ZF TOR I Group 6 Row 22 Grave 44.

This suggests the alternate spellings were used simultaneously.

Can anyone provide an explanation, or is aware of similar instances ?
Which of these two surnames should one focus on for researching ?
Both ?

Could Rosalia S. be the Sara who is the mother of Francisca in the
marriage document ?

As an aside, the above marriage couple are the great-grandparents of my
wife Diana.It was the coincidence of Eduard's with my own surname that
started me on the genealogy path some 20 years ago.

So far, I have only been able to prove we are related through our own marriage.
