Two of my Guttenberg great aunts/uncles, brother and sister Abraham Simon (b Hull 1872) and Rachel Guttenberg (b Hull 1882) married Gorfunkles, Minnie and Isaac. Both the Guttenberg and Gorfunkels (spelt various ways) came from Rajgrod in Lomza Gubernia and both came to UK in the 1860's. The Gorfunkels went to Liverpool and the Guttenbergs went to Hull, Grimsby and then Sheffield. Minnie and Isaac were two of the children of Lazarus and Sprinza Gorfunkel. They can be found in the Liverpool Censuses of 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911. Minnie and Mina Gorfunkel sound like a family naming pattern.
