Thanks for your reply!

Today there is in Germany the surname "Gallwas," but in the thousands of archives I have looked through, there were no Gallwas in the 19th century. Thus, I am not able to trace the person on my family tree.

The URL you sent me I have seen before, but I have been mystified over the present day usage of this name since there are none in ANY archive within the years of the 1800's -1900's for which I am searching.

Also, I have seen the French variant for Gallwas, but since my grandmother's familly only ever spoke German and never considered themselves of French blood I wondered if there was another variant of the spelling for Gallwas that would apply to my family.

Thanks for your help!
