Post subject: surname Prus
I just found my ggrandfather's sister,Rozalia Braciszewski,b 1867,her brother, Martin b.1864.
Also found that she had another name, Prus. I don't know where it came from.
martin and Rozalia's parents were Marcin Braciszewski and Cecylia Koteras,married in 1849--Poznan Project.
Rozalia married Vincenty Sarnowski on Sept.10,1895 at St. Stan's Church,Buffalo NY.
The only Prus i could find was Maciej Prus and Anna Klawiter,and dau.Fraciszka Prus 1821.
Our Braciszewski family was from Slawno,Wielkopolskie,Poland.
I don't know where these other Prus family members are from.
They say many Prus names are Jewish.Is that correct ?
Mainly,I'd like to know where her Prus name came from and if I can give you any other info,let me know Thanks, Marie

Post subject: Prus name
I am not related to any Prus but it was also a name of the nobility Prus. A Marya Pruszynska married Dominik Czarnecki and they are both buried along with their son in Kaczanowka, Skalat, Ternopil province Ukraine. Marya died in 1839. The Czarnecki's owned Kaczanowka in the 1800's. Prus may have originated from Prussia? Did you google the Prus name? You will see it has one faction with the nobility attached to it. With their coat-of-arms. I hope this helps...Marcia
