Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Origins of surnames #austria-czech

Hi,

Can anyone steer to me to an on-line site where I can find out
the origin of certain (Jewish) surnames. This is really a
generic question,.

But for example, my surname is HAAS, and while I know that
my paternal grandparents were born in the Czech Republic, I also
know that there are "Haases" all over the world. Is there some
source that might delve into the possible origins of that (or any
other) name?
