The SHOKHENMAYERs

Long before I intented to carry out the research on my own surname: SHOKHENMAYER.

The actual "Shokhenmayer" is the translitteration from Russian "ШОХЕНМА(Й)ЕР". I was told that in various documents of my family in the beginning of the XXth century two German versions are to be found:

Schochenmeier

and

Schochenmaier.

Theoretically, there could be more:

Schochenmeyer 

Schochenmayer

Schockenmeier

Schockenmaier

Schockenmeyer

Schockenmayer

Schochenmayr

Schochenmair

Schochenmeir

Schockenmayr

Schockenmair

Schockenmeir

Post by post I will present everything I found in the archives, documents, maps and on the Internet. If you have some ideas, your help will be appriciated a lot!!!
