Can anyone read this name?

+5 votes


The surname that can not be read is actually HIRSCHBERG, as she was married to Hermann Hirschberg. 

I have just uploaded a photo of Flora Wolff, and another that was some blurred writing with her married name. I just can't make it out.   

The photo says Flora W........l...berg geb Wolff. Or something like that.  Meaning her maiden name was Flora Wolff, and she was married to a Mr. W........l...berg. Probably a Prussian Jewish name, as she was born in Posen.  Does that look like any kind of surname that makes sense?

I do know that her parents are Isaak Wolff and Maria Heilbronn.

Possiblties for the rest of Flora's name:

There are additional Flora Wolffs if you want to check. Just enter Flora W for first name at and Wolff for the last name, and Prussion for the Residence Place.

Is there any chance of obtaining a more in focus photo of her picture?
Thank you, none of those are the right person, but I did spend some time searching on FamilySearch as you are right, I do at least know her maiden name, Flora Wolff.
Is it possible that it is Mrs _____ L_ _  berg? meaning a first and last name?
No, I know for sure that her name was Flora Wolff, as it is labeled clearly in other photos. This is the only photo I have that lists her married name. So, the photo says "Flora [married surname] geb Wolff"   Geb is shorthand German for "born" or "Maiden" name, and Wolff was indeed her married name.
Im sorry I typed what I meant wrong I meant to say  could the section after Flora and before beg Wolff refer to a Mrs ___ L_ _ berg.  Meaning the full name of the spouse  I took it in to a program to try to enhance without much luck but it appears to be a space there
I don't think so; I think it is just a long surname, like Würelaberg or something that makes way more sense than what I just typed...

You're right about it being blurry, although it looks like Wurtteberg, maybe. I could be wrong.

I agree; it really does look like that. However, Google doesn't come back with any hitsf for that Jewish surname from Posen.

Perhaps Württemberg is another option? There is a place in Germany much further west called Baden-Württemberg that perhaps people are named after?

Flora Wurttemberg geb Wolff or something like that.  But, very few Google results other than for the place.
