I have a Karteikarte reading : Maj.dR. Frhr. „Wambold“ v. Umstadt
In Trauerannoncen steht : Maj.dR. Frhr. „Wambolt“ v. Umstadt
In Personalveränderungen 1941 steht : Maj.dR. Frhr. von „Wambold“
As in both the K.Karte and the PV there is „Wambold“, that should be correct BUT in Internet there is „Wambolt“ like in Trauerann., so „Wambolt“ correct ???
Also,is „v. Umstadt“ the correct completion of the name(and therefore PV. is wrong) or what ?
I hope somebody can help, thanks

First let me thank You for Your kind contributes.

I know Wikipedia (I wrote above "in Internet....."), but the problem is that I am a "name perfectionist" and to me is Wambold and Wambolt or Schmitt and Schmidt totally different names. That´s why I always look for official evidences (birth or death docs., etc.)

If I knew the actual family address I´ d write them asking for that, but I don´t know who they are and where they live.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
