Riskey/Risky/Risker German Surnames
Can anyone help me? I am looking for help with a German name "Riskey" as my grandmother recorded it on our pedigree chart. But my maiden name is "Risker"; the name was changed. My family was from Baden, Germany and Buer, Melle, Hannover, Germany; PrussiaI am having trouble figuring out just how my surname was spelled when they immigrated to the US in the mid 1800s; came to Missouri. Thank you!
