Hi Lilith!

I was looking for some genealogic data 'bout my family name - "Schmidgen" - on the net. And came upon your use of the word as a noun
(meaning "a litte bit", I guess) by chance. You used that word in a message posted December 20, 2001 at 9:14:20 PM
(", my religion after I've had a schmidgen too much caffeine").
Thatt was one of 5 uses on the ENTIRE WEB of my family name as a noun. Seems to be a rather unusual word?

If you know anything 'bout the origins of this word - u.s. region, culture, etymology, etc., please tell me.
Has there been some one named Schmidgen who was rather small? Or parts of him?

If you know anything about it tell me, please. Would be nice to find out why foreign people constantly abuse one's surname :-)
