JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen ViewMate - Surname Interpretation #general


Hello all, I've posted the 1894 NYC marriage record of my great grandparents
Louis LIEBMAN and Rose RANTZMAN for which I need an interpretation, or
deciphering, of the bride's mother's maiden surname. It is on ViewMate at
the following address:

Supposedly >from "Russia" but I don't know what town. The given name looks
like Biene which comes up as a Galician Yiddish nickname on the given name
database. In one of the bride's subsequent census records birth place was
"Poland". But that surname eludes me. The obvious interpretations as well
as all of my more imaginative possible interpretations do not show up on
surname databases and search engines so I'm obviously missing something.

Thank you very much,
Steven Schutzman
Upstate New York
