KOBERNUSS & KUBBERNUSS FAMILIES

Updated December 21, 2003

The purpose of this page is to encourage research of the genealogy of the KOBERNUSS and KUBBERNUSS families.

We have researched US and German records as early as 1600 and found over 1200 people who used one or more of the known variations of the Kobernuss & Kubbernuss surnames. Some variations are clearly errors in transcription. However, until the late 1800's in Germany spelling was not considered important.

We're not sure of the origin of these names. KOBENHAVEN Denmark is not far from the Malchin area in Mecklenburg where they first appear, so maybe there is a connection there. The surnames Cober & Kobern are also found frequently in German records.

The COBERNUSS family, merchants in 1450 in Malchin near the Mecklenburg-West Pomerania border, appear to be the earliest mention of the variations that begin to show up in German church records as early as 1600.

The surname variations in German and US records appear to stem from the two most common forms; KOBERNUSS and KUBBERNUSS. Since these two names have been used interchangeably in church records, and appear in the same general area of Mecklenburg, we assume for now they have a common origin.Here are some variations that we've encountered in our research:

Cobernus , Cobernuss , Cubbernus , Kobernuhs , Kobernus , Kobernuss , Kobernusz , Koffarnus , Kubberness , Kubbernuhs , Kubbernus , Kubbernuss , Kubernus , Kuppernus
