German SIG #Germany LAFFE Surname #germany

Dear GerSig members

The surname LAFFE may well be a derivative >from Levy. There were a small
number of individuals with this surname who emigrated >from Russia around
1896. The specific name I am looking for is Stratton LAFFE, pronunciation
at this time is with a long A and silent E. There are only four or five
families located in America with the surname as far as I can tell.

Can you:

Shed any light on the origin of the surname?

Does anyone have any knowledge of whereabouts of families by this name?

Thank you for your help. Shalom,

Diane Hartman Cudo Ariel, Israel <tikvah7@netvision.net.il>
