Hi. My name is Mark Leivermann. I come from the line you mentioned: Leivermann Ewigmann, Hoen, and Schwartz are all in my family line, and I was born in Minnesota. I've traced the Leivermann name back to the Westphalen, Germany area. They emigrated to Minnesota in the mid 1850's. Because of the customs observed in my home I've always believed we have some Jewish blood in us. It seems some things live on, even if they get changed a bit.
