I'm curious to find out what I can about my surname, Plewnarz.
Oldest record I've found is from my great grandparents' immigration to Olean, NY in only 1940, so I have no idea if the name was different at all before
(not very close to my family, more comfortable asking strangers on the Internet)
And despite those grandparents being named Mary and Joseph I know there is Jewish heritage somewhere too.
Any details at all would be cool, it's not very common.
If it helps, I've always been told to pronounce it "plou - nars" like "soup cars", which I'm sure is probably wrong.
Thanks for your time!
