Swedish Surname Taxtel?
« on: Monday 08 July 19 17:39 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am transcribing a burial register in Lisbon and have an entry for a Emanuel Taxtel a native of Sweden. The Ta and tel are okay but I am not sure of the x in between. Has anyone come across the name Taxtel before??

many thanks
John

The x would be unusual in a Swedish name. Perhaps try ks instead, but even then it is not looking like a normal Swedish name.
