Thanks to Jacques de Guise for sending this link to the lists. He adds, "There are some interesting names which have, or have not been en-Frenchised such as COPP for KOPP. Other names you will find are ACKERMANN, BALZINGER, EBERLE, KOHLER, JOST, KOP, LANSAMMAN, MAYER, NAGLE, WOLF....there will not be that many Alsatian names. Be careful however, as some of those Spanish or French or some of those Algerian names could hid an Alsatian name!
