Schoenberg FamilyTree DNA Project- Background
Schoenberg, Schoenberger, Schonberg, Schönberg, Schonberger, Schönberger
Schoenberg is a toponymic, meaning that the name identifies some town called Schoenberg (=beautiful mountain) where your ancestor lived and which was then used as his surname when he moved somewhere else. Because there are many towns in central Europe with the name Schoenberg, we would expect to find many unrelated families with the Schoenberg surname.
