In Reply to: Hartong, Hartung, Harting names by Dave Hess of 362

my experience of 11 years researching in detail my own HARTING ancestry (from northern Germany to New Minden, Illinois 1854) that each of the names you mention: Hartong, Hartung and Harting have separate identities, which can upon occasion be changed to another spelling or to be mistaken one for the other. I have found this change from Hartung to Harting especially frequent for some reason. There is a place in Sussex England which is Harting, which belies the rule that Harting is a good GERMAN name. Hart= hard in German; thus Harding is english but Harting is German. It is my belief that all three names are of original German origin. paul harting
