JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching: SRUH, Western Slovakia #general

Georg Gaugusch <e9526666@...>

Here is a question about a quite strange name, only found in the area of
Western Slovakia (Preszburg, St. Georgen, Stampfen, Neutra) and later
Vienna. It seems, that the family came >from Galicia, but this is uncertain,
the first bearer of the name is a Jacob ben Wolf SRUH, servant of Markus
FEIN in Vienna in 1787 (>from Galicia), his son was Jacob SRUH (born St.
Georgen near Preszburg ca. 1803, died in Vienna 1. IV. 1868, merchant,
married to Therese KORITSCHONER >from Preszburg). Another SRUH was merchant
in Neutra in 1859.
