“And we call them…  Fritz and Lina” 
As was common in many countries, Germans followed basic naming patterns - most of the time. 
However, there could a problem when three boys in a family are named “Johann.” 
How about several families with the same surname, living in close proximity but not family members?
Spelling?
House and Farm names? 
There can be a lots of confusion in our research. Let’s take a look at some of the solutions! 

We're Proud Members
