I was wondering if there is a place to find the pronunciation of surnames.

Mainly: Feigenbaum and Gristede

I don't know as these are not English surnames?

They look like German or Dutch to me.
Since there generally aren't dictionary entries for surnames, you have to guess at pronounciations. Sometimes you can apply pronounciation rules for similar words, but more often you'll have to know the rules for the origin language. Sometimes the web might have pages with pronounciations, but often not.

Feigenbaum sounds German, so the 'ei" is pronounced like the i in 'high'. Figh-gehn-bomb.

Gristede might be grihss-teed

Hello Anonymous,

"Feigenbaum" indeed is German and pronounced ['[email protected]] (@ like "a" in ago).

I don't know where "Gristede" is from, in case it's of German origin, it pronunciation can be ['[email protected]@] or [gris'te: [email protected]], if it's of Dutch origin, then it's pronunciation could be something equal to ['[email protected]@]. (C as "ch" in German ich or an overpronounced "h" in English human).

I hope I could help you out, all the best

Could someone help me with the proper pronunciation of the English (American) surname Keyser?

Is it something like KEE-ZER or rather KAI-ZER?
