Researching: Kopciak & Kamenmacher

Hello, and welcome to the Kopciak and Kamenmacher research page! These are two very uncommon Jewish surnames. *Dec. 2007: If you arrived here by performing a web search for "Kamenmacher," we have to talk! If you believe you may be a part of this extended family, please write to me at now, even if you're not sure. (I say this because, through a traffic-tracker site, I've discovered that many vistors spend a lot of time here, but remain anonymous -- please, don't be a stranger!) Before clicking on the links below, scroll down to learn more about this family. Also, please note: We have far more information and incomplete branches than what appears on this site, due to privacy concerns. Over winter break, I will try to clean this page up and add more information.

Note: Some Kamenmacher branches changed the name to MILLER/KAMMEN in America.
(It is entirely possible that there are more alternate spellings of which I am unaware).
