      Group,
      I am curious as to what my surname "Zuber" means. I have both found
      numerous people with the same surname who's ancestor were from France
      and Germany as well as read it somewheres that it is a German
      surname. And these people are of no relation to me as far as I can
      tell.
      My Zuber ancestor were from Gribov, Czech which is now Gribov,
      Slovakia.
      I know that there were german immigrants in parts of Czechoslovakia
      at one time and though just a thought with no proof to support my
      claim I thought that maybe at one time my Zuber's may have actually
      been from Germany.
      Is there anyone who can shed some light on my mystery?

      Thanks,
      Missy Zuber
