    My mother's family name was Jewish back in  Greifswald, where her family were linen weavers, but by 1880 in the USA it was changed to a phonetic-spelled version and it was not.
    Wish someone was still alive who could tell me about those old things.

    I buy and sell well trained riding mules and American Mammoth Jack Stock.
