My question is:- can someone who is knowledgeable throw some light on
the surname SHLUZITEL and its origins. To me is sounds Yiddish. Does
any know what it means? And what further advice would they give?
Your phonetic transliteration is pretty fair; better would be
"Sluzhitel". Not Yiddish, it is a Russian word meaning "servant".
