I need to identify the maiden name of Sophia Hecht. She looks to be the daughter of Judlein Fluitenfeld and Babette Burchbaum. It was both her and her husband's second marriage. Those names are very unusual, and I am looking for any help in determining their correct spellings and ancestral town in Germany, if possible.

12/15/2011 3:00 PM I read the names as Flintenfeld and Bucsbaum.
12/15/2011 4:02 PM I agree with the previous poster: Flintenfeld and Bucsbaum. There is probably an 'h' missing from the second name, and it should read "Buchsbaum" which means boxwood in German. Probably a typo...
12/17/2011 2:16 PM I read: Flichtenfeld: I could not find any other person with this name.
Mother's maiden name: Buxbaum, a common alternative spelling of Buchsbaum.
