thank you for reply.
There are so many questions I try to answer.
You wrote, that your ancestors had lived in Hamburg,
before they moved to Russia.
Hamburg and other nothern german cities like Luebeck,
Bremen or Oldenburg
are centres of Klingenberg-living, there is the mass/herd.
It is very unlikely/improbable that Klingenberg in Hamburg
came from other areas.
Town Meissen is not a center of Klingenberg,
here lives now with this name
me and my parents and an uncle with family,
my brother lives in the near with his family.
In the last time also was my grandfather
and great-grand-father here in Meissen.
I have written that Meissen is famous by dresden china
(in english language it is named Dresden,
but since year 1710 produced in Meissen, about 25 km
northwest of Dresden).
Dear Faye, I do not think that a porcelain-head-doll is
made in Meissen, other german factories may be.
The Meissen-porcelain is very expensive, it is used
for exclusive dishes (cups, plates) and it is signed by two
crossed blue swords.
But I know, that such dolls are precious and
popular by collectors.
Did your family always live in Germany or did they move from Sweden or
Norway? It seems like many Germans came from one of
the Scandinavian countries.
I think that
in a last time
when today borders has no meaning
the name Klingenberg arose in the area of coast of baltic sea
and northern sea,
which is now in Netherlands, northern Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden,
Litauen, Lettland, Poland.
I except Finland and Estonia because of language
(this is an own group of language together with Hungary),
I think that my family came from an other origin of Klingenberg in
Re: Klingenberg near Linz, the castle,
the two paragraphs by the pictures:
First certified owner of Klingenberg (castle) was
called Burkhart, his name appears in year 1276. In
following time often changed the owner of castel.
Once it was in reign of "von Wallsee", they've got
Klingenberg as pledge/pawn. But Duke Albrecht the
first repurchased it. Also Liechtenstein, an old
austrian family of nobility, had to do with Klingenberg
castle. In the year 1491 the brothers Sigmund and
Heinrich PrŁeschenk (Reichs-Frei- und Panierherren
= old german titles) have sold the castle Klingenberg
to Leonhart Schneckenreuter for price of 1400 Gulden
in hungarian coins.
and so on
Burkhart, Burghardt or similar spelled is a commonly german
I will send a graphic of Klingenberg-density to
