Bernstein Genealogy & History

Bernstein is a Jewish and German name. It was originally taken from the German word Bernstein, which means amber. That was derived from the Middle Low German words bernen, meaning to burn, and sten, meaning stone (amber was thought to be made by burning). It could also have been a locational name taken from a German town named Bernstein. Bernstein family history begins in Prussia, where they held political influence since ancient times. Bernstein genealogy includes Leonard Bernstein, one of the first American-born conductors who gained worldwide fame, and Lionel Bernstein, who along with his wife Hilda was a prominent anti-apartheid activist.
