Subject: Origin and meaning of Surname CRISTOL


I am attempting to find the origin and meaning of the surname
CRISTOL, coming >from families >from Akmene, Lithuania and then to
Ireland before coming to the US. I consulted Alexander Beider's
"Dictionary of Jewish Surnames in Russian Empire", but found nothing
on this name.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
Bernie Hirsch
