"w----" ?

Hello!

This "W" word after the names, does it mean "local resident" ?

This is from near Stuttgart. Several people on this page have this word after their names.

Thank you!

Hello,

"Wenig": maybe it's a local name. It exists as a part of Ainring in Bavaria.

Hello,
possibly "Weing." = Weingärtner = wine-grower
MfG, J. Steffen

J Steffen, thank you--that is more logical! This is definitely a wine-growing area.

Hi Asharp,

in order to really help you "we" need a bigger picture so one could compare. On the otherhand more information; is your picture from a churchbook?
What year and what area you are researching??

Regards
Renate from Berlin

Renate, sorry! I did not see your post before.
I had to make the image that small to comply with the 80kb maximum file size allowed.
As I said, it was from Stuttgart. It is from a church book, from about 1870.
Thank you!

Hello Asharp,

I agree with J.Steffen's "Weing.". That can be an abbreviation of Weingärtner (occupation, like J.Steffen interpreted) and as well of Weingarten (locality).
In the current streetmap of Stuttgart you can find a Weingartenbergle (Bergle = local idiom for small hill) and a Weinbergweg (wineyard road). https://www.meinestadt.de/stuttgart/stad…enverzeichnis/w
You pointed out that several people have "Weing," after their names. What have the others? That will probably clarify whether an occupation or a locality is meant.

Kind regards
Detlef
