It's a while since I last wrote and I'm still looking for my German born great-grandfather who became known in Glasgow, Scotland, UK as Lewis Mitchell. His registration and birth given on his mariage certificate as Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He married in Glasgow as Lewis Mitchell but apparently was previously called Louis "Meesh-ler" - this is how my late mother pronounced it. But I have no proof that is how his German name did sound, there is nothing with the name in writing. I was having difficulty with his German name spelling.
It's been a hectic year so far and I have had little opportuity for my family research. However, most recent findings while browsing the Ancestry One World Tree are that over a very long period of time, 1600's into early 1900's, there were a lot of MISCHLER's in Heppenheim an der Bergstrasse, Dramstadt, Hessen (Hesse), Germany and later I also saw a few in Biblis, Damstradt. Both south of Frankfurt am Main. This suggests that this may have been the surname of my great-grandfather.
It doesn't really get me very far, just an idea. But I wondered how the name MISCHLER is pronounced? Would it be "Meesh-ler"?
