Ask the Expert

Expert Question:  My father was from a town called Zborov, which is in the Ukraine now, but was part of Poland in the early 20th century.  I see that there are several towns in Poland today by the name of Ostrow.  How do I find out if there is a connection between one of these towns and my last name, Ostrower?

Expert Answer: While it is likely that your family name represents the same origin as one of these towns, it is not necessarily likely that your family comes from one of these towns.  Making generalizations without backing it up with facts based on research can be dangerous. 

The best thing to do is to continue to trace your Ostrower family line to see if you can find evidence that family members came from one of these towns or find out how or why they took this surname.  Begin checking documents, such as naturalization papers, which may provide other details about the family's origin.  Also, you may find documents in Zborov that note where they came from previously.

Somewhere there must be a clue.
