From: karl h schwerin <schwerin -at- unm.edu> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Possible surname "Aberesche(sp.), & tough to contactthe sender Date: Wed, 14 Jul 2004 15:20:23 -0600 (MDT) In-Reply-To: <003a01c469df$e90726c0$738c1e9d@oemcomputer> I googled the word, which brought me to a bunch of German-language websites. All had links for translation, though some of the English translations are as hard to understand as the German. Anyway, "Aberesche" is a less preferred, or archaic spelling for "Eberesche." This is known as the "false ash" or "bird berry," and seems to be common in German forests. (It's what we call the mountain ash, or European mountain ash, Sorbus aucuparia). Still no idea what or how this relates to genealogy - Robert Croxton's or otherwise.
