My wife had an ancestor whose family name was Harris, but their original
surname was Krewianski or Krivyonski. How did they get Harris >from that?
When they came to America, they took their father's first name and made
it a last name! So Harry Krewianski was the father of Golda Leah Harris,
Moomie Chave Harris and Gershon Harris.

I was wondering if anyone would have any good ideas about last
names...my family in Lithuania apparently had a name like
Heir...Ger...but when they came to America it was Harris...would anyone
know which surname would be most likely? I haven't been able to find
out any more information.
Thanks in advance for your help,
