I would like to know the surname of record 159. The given name is Mordche in Roman characters, but the surname is written in German Gothic script that I have not been able to decipher.

Mordche
Sprü(n) Fugel

but I do not recognize that name.
It could be that it is not meant as two names but that the Fugel/Vogel(Bird) has the "Sprü_" as a more precise specification...
4/28/2013 1:01 PM I respectfully disagree with the previus poster:
There is no "V" or "o" in the second line of the surname.
What might be mistaken for a "V" is the lower loop of the "p" in the previous line. What looks lika an "o" is in fact the first half of a German script "g".
The mystery to me are the last two letters in the first line. It could be just one letter, and the last part a double-hyphen as used in German script to split words at line breaks.
So my interpretation is "Sprün[?]gel"

4/29/2013 1:05 AM My interpretation: "Sc(?)rän" or "Sc(?)rüm" "Fugel". The third letter is illegible and is possibly followed by an 'r'. The next vowel is either a 'u' than followed by an 'm' or an 'a' followed by an 'n', but definitely not an 'o'.
