Thought Jonburg or Ljungberg was changed to Youngberg because Americans inprocessing Swedish immigrants at Ellis Island thought that was the way it was spelled, the surname Youngberg is actually Dutch. It was an affluent family that lived in Amsterdam who's descendents also emmigrated to America. The name Jonburg or Ljungberg was mispelled Youngberg because in Swedish Jonburg or Ljungberg is pronounced you-ungh'berry, I don't know how you pronounce Youngberg in Dutch, but will post it when I find out
