I'm new to this forum, and have a few questions about my family surnames. My paternal grandmother's family are from southeastern Poland, near Ulanow/Przedzel/Rudnick/Zarzecze. My research shows that there still families in that area with each of these surnames.
Wrobel - I read that this surname is used by both Polish and Jewish people. Did one group borrow it from the other?
Puskarczyk - what does this name mean? Is the -czyk suffix typical of Polish surnames?
Rzepiela - this name does not sound Polish to me; what is its origin?
Dubeil - also does not sound Polish to me; what is its origin?
sorry, I forgot to say that I am writing from the USA -
