My great grand father was supposedly fully Jewish but my mother and I took DNA tests recently and no companies have found any Jewish...

atDNA is different from Y- and mt-dna. Also, the Teitelbaums are a Charedi ("Chasidic") dynasty.

What would that matter at all? It is just a name.

Literally, Polish name means this > ``We are Sarmats from plains.`` At least in legends, Poles remembered their true identity.

What does the name Kargol mean? There is some one from Poland with the name in my family tree? Might it actuallybe Baltic, say Lithuanian or something?

Kargul is a surname which occupies a very special place in Polish culture. He was one of two main characters in a Polish classic cult comedy "Sami Swoi"

Are you joking Spike31? Lol. I was asking what the last name means. Should've been more specific. Margaritha was their first name.

I was asking what the last name means.

Kargul loosely stands for cunning. It's a deeply Polonized surname of a German origin

Thank you, Spike31. What about the surname Pacharz?
Spike31 3 | 1637

Same as Smolarz which is: Pitch burner
28 Nov 2018 #224
Is Pacharz of German origin as well?

Rather the opposite I'd say. Like 'Smolarz' and others, 'Pacharz' looks pretty much Slavic to me.

Any information on the last names Stolarski or Podorski (Podgorski)

My great grandparents immigrated from Poland to America, but we lost nearly all of my family's history on that side so I know next to nothing about them. My great grandfather's last name was Stolarski and my great grandmothers maiden name was either Podorski. We're not sure if she altered the spelling when they immigrated.

Someone said that they thought Podorski was a Polska Roma surname, but I don't know how reliable that is at all.
Any information is helpful, many thanks.

Well, Stolarski is quite a popular Polish surname so it's difficult to trace it to one region of Poland. You can loosely translate Stolarski as Carpenter.

It was also a name of Masovian XIX century nobility. Some male members of this family are still alive and entitled to coat of arms.

My true name is Pawian Brzęczyszczykiewicz. Foreigners have always had problems trying to utter it, especially Germans. In English Brzęczyszczykiewicz means sth like Buzzerblandville. It is not so rare in Poland, when you try to google it, you will receive a lot of info.
