Surname Saturday - Alphabetical Ancestors - E

Take a moment to look over these surnames. I post them in hopes of discovering new contacts to expand my knowledge of these names. Some of these surnames are more twigs than branches on my tree. It is time to let them out to get some sunshine & some attention.

If you see some leaves & branches from your trees, let’s share & compare.

E is for these Surnames…

My great grandmother was Fannie Edelstein [1860 Austria – 1908 NY]. Her father was Adolph. She married Lepold Gartner [1860 Austria – 1948 NY]. I have not done any Austria research as yet.
