A few surnames
I think Sechriest might be German, I know my Tredent relatives were from Italy (meaning the surname was altered. Possibly from Tredente or Tredenti) and Lo Galbo is definitely Italian. Does someone know what they mean?______________________________"....A simple I love you means more than money...."- Frank Sinatra

German surmane SECHRIESTI think, it's a variant of SECHRIST:http://www.ancestry.com/search/SurnamePage.aspx?sourcecode=13304&html=b&fn=&ln=sechrist&submit.x=0&submit.y=0The German word "Sigrist" is not in use any more (except in Switzerland). The name SECHRIST is *very* rara in Germany, as SECHRIEST it is almost nonexistant (5 or 6 hits at Google on German sites). I have never heard of either.

By the way, the German vocabulary word "Sigrist" is from Latin "sacer" (holy). So it's the "keeper of the Sanctuary".
