Re: [S-R] Was taking the mothers last name common in 1800? Richwald & Szinye
- Dear A:
I"m not sure what you mean by "root stock" but if I understand correctly,
as I went farther back in time, the branches of the family tree started to
fall into place, so I would say that there was a "narrowing" of the root
stock. I hope that this helps.
