JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Beginning research on TOBIN name #general
Deborah Tobin <deb.tobin@...>
My last name is Tobin and I was always told that this name was of Irish
Catholic origin. However, in the past couple of years I have met a number
of people who have told me that Tobin is a Jewish name. Can anyone help
with this? Thanks,
