FYI: Fivecoat, Finfrock, and Fünfrock

For those of you who don't already know this, the German name Fünfrock, also spelled Finfrock, Funfrock, and Finefrock by later American generations, has also been translated as Fivecoat in this country. I have found my Finfrock ancestors recorded under all possible spelling variations in the records. Just a reminder to check all versions of the name when researching your family!
