This list will be a guide to those who find ancestors who seem to have no prior relatives to be found.
——————————————–
Several ancestral lines on my family tree seem to disappear prior to the American Revolution — simple explanation? The prior generation ‘Americanized’ there surnames (changed it to prevent persecution, or to “fit-in” better with their new new neighbors). [Finding these original surnames is not easy to do.]

This is my theory, based on several instances where family in North Carolina changed their names. Here are several I know of:

Klein = Cline, Kline, or “Little”
Zimmerman = “Carpenter”
Jung = Young
Silbers = Silvers, Silver
Boell = Bell, Ball
Boest = Bost, Best, Bess, Betts/Bettes
Baird/Beard = Byrd, Bird
Boteler/Bohelier = Bulter
Baumgardner
Bury = Berry
Johannsson = Johnson
Gustaffsson = Justice
Bohun = Boone, Bowen
Brashears = Brasher, Brashier/Brazier
Embrehough = Embry

That is my short list, for now.
[search the alphabetical list below for a more extensive possibilities...]

This is a genealogy lead I will be following up on as I can.

If you have other “Americanized” translations of possible Jewish surnames, please contact me.

Thank you for visiting.

  1. I decend from several names on your list including Klein, Zimmerman and Jung. While I have wondered about possible jewish ancestry I have not found any of the names including these to be exclusively jewish. They are just german.
    I have taken part in Y DNA testing and have been linked to others sharing the surnames REGAN, REAGAN, RAGAN and even RIGGIN. Names have changed over time for many reasons including the lack knowledge in earlier times of how to spell ones name. I would suggest Y DNA testing would be the best and possibly only way to establish any jewish links.
