Schmaltz Name Study

Posting here to introduce the Schmaltz Name Study (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Schmaltz_Name_Study).

Would love to hear from any of you with information, new profiles, etc., involving the Schmaltz surname, migration history, and the like.  There are quite a few resources out there -- most of which I haven't seen firsthand -- detailing the history of German-heritage immigrants coming through parts of what is now Ukraine and Russia.  Some of this is discussed on old forums at the site for The Society for German Genealogy in Eastern Europe (SGGEE), available at https://www.sggee.org/.  If you have experience using this site or other resources containing similar information, please post what you can in the Schmaltz Name Study profile and, of course, create profiles of individuals whose information you may have.

Hi,

I have some Schmaltz in my part of the tree, starting with Schmaltsz-57. I'm trying to get a hold of a book "Die familie Hoffmann aus Sangerhausen" where I guess some of them are in, a Schmaltz daughter marry a Hoffmann son.. They are from the Dresden area in Germany. Close to the eastern border (Chech and Polish).

I'll put anything I find from the book in the corresponding profiles. I just have to get through the book, german is not my strongest skill!

I don't really know how to use the schmaltz space, would you like me to post any interesting info directly on the page? or as a comment?

BR
