Dosenberg/Dozenberg Family Tree

as it is known to date
(Dosenberg is the German spelling vs Dozenberg is the Lativan/Russian
whereas "berg" means "mountain," and "dosen," meaning "tin")

Note: Researching a branch of the family tree that came from Europe presents some unique challenges, including enlisting the aid of a researcher in the country of origin. The USA and Canadian records are much more complete and accessible if you know married surnames of the women and can untangle the "Anglonization" of surnames for the men. I have also discovered that the men and women would "Anglonize" their first names to sound "more American," or more Western if you will. I don't suppose it occurred to people that generations later people might want to find a record of them or be interested in their lives. The other more obvious issue is that the immigrants into American culture where often poor and held meager positions, another challenge when trying to document their lives.

This tree is only information about people that are known and not intended to be a complete record. Please leave comments if you have any information about this family tree and are willing to share.
