As you can see, my family also changed the spelling of our last name from Rosner to Rasner, which is pronounced RaIsner. Do you know if this is just an Americanization of the name the way it sounds in German? My Great Grandfather was a blacksmith who came to work in the coal mines in Southern Indiana in October, 1906. I just found out he was born in Schweidnitz, Germany, which is now Swidnica, Poland. Do you know anything about the cusom of apprenticing young children to a trade? Evidently he was almost "sold" as a child to learn to be a blacksmith. If you have any information about this or my family, I would appreciate hearing about it. My Great Grandfather's name was Gustav Joseph Rosner, b. Jan 1866. m. Pauline Rose. Children: Gustave Joseph Jr, Freida, Fritz, Erich, Ermagart, and Emma. Thank you for listening. Gail
