Herzog is German for Duke. The corresponding words for Prince are
Prinz or Furst in German, Knjaz in Russian.

In researching mymaternal lineI have been examining theLDS records from
Jaroslaw for the surname Prince.Although the records are in Cyrillic,it
is clear that nothing resembling"Prince"can be found.Would Prince be an
Anglicized version of a Polish Name? Any help would be appreciated.
I suggest to search for Herzog. In Russian it shall start with letter G.
