||Re: Czech/Solvak/Polish by Jim Young
Thanks so much Jim. After reading some of the responses on this site, I -think- I may begin to have a clue about Passuth. It seems that 'uth' is Old English, derived from old high german, meaning south or southern. 'Pas' is slovak for sea or seaward. The earliest Passuth I was able to find dated prior to 1790, so I'm thinking perhaps the family was from the southern coast, when the area was Austria/Hungry. I have to get the immigration records I have out. What are your thoughts?
Pretty funny about the Dziuba! Luckily, the things have been watered down over the generations!
