Josefowicz: Jewish, Gentile. or Both? #general


Caroline Belle Fortier <Caroline.Fortier@...>
 

While researching the Czech side of my family I took a small break and put my
grandfather's name into some of the web databases. Every JOSEFOWICZ I found
was Jewish. I have always been told that my Polish ancestors were Catholic.
What are the chances that both Jewish and Gentile families in Poland shared
surnames? My grandfather's parents came to the US around 1890.
