Hello and pleasant greetings from Melbourne, Australia.

My Polish wife and I are having some difficulty finding any details from this side of her family.
Michał Anszpergier married Marianna Zaremba or Zaręba and had 1 son Eugeniusz about 1928.
They later divorced and Michał moved to France but rumours were that he returned to Poland.
His ex-wife and son never saw or heard from him again and no further life details are known.
I have found that there are 11 people in Poland with the name Anszpergier all living in Lodz.
If you are related or can help us in any way we would be very happy to hear news from you.

Another question but not so important is the meaning of this surname. Any ideas welcome. :-)

Best regards,

ANSZPERGIER and ANSZPERGER are Polonised spellings of the German toponymic surname Ansperger denoting an inhabitant of the locality of Ansberg, Austria. In that regional dialect the 'b' in Ansberg has evolved into a 'p'.

ZARĘBA: root-word zarąbać (to hack to pieces) - possibly a nick for a warrior handy with his trusty battle-axe; more likely a topo nick from Zaręby, Zaręba, Zarębów and similar.
