I found myself wondering: The stamp in my great-grandfather's machzor says "M. H. Bissinger -- Cigarren & Wein -- Ichenhausen". But we only ever knew his name as "Max". What did the H stand for?

Well, I've been doing all this genealogical research lately, right? And just the other day I found this awesome database at http://jgbs.org/ with lots of facsimile records from Bavarian Swabia, with many records (including all the ones from Ichenhausen) indexed. So tonight I looked him up; his birth record just says "Max Bissinger" but his marriage record says "Max Heinrich L Bissinger".

The Internet is an amazing place.
