This is part of a list of Jews in the Hungarian town of Rajka (Ragendorf). I am interested in the first two names and their professions on the list. Could these names be similar to WELLISCH or something similar?

6/25/2013 3:54 AM I'm reading the head of the first family:
Wolleff [which might be a variation of the common name Wolff], Springer [first name], Brandweinbrenner [using modern spelling rules]
