How can I find out the ethnicity of last names?


Answer by  sue123 (375)

This is rather easy to do. You can find the information that you are looking by simply using any search engine, i.e. Google, and typing in "Ethnicity of last names".

the relatives of the family of the name may be able to assist in finding the ethnicity of it, but, lacking that, official records could help you track down the origin of a name, Immigration records would be best. for a faster less researched method you can always google it.

Your best bet is to research a name through a field of study that is referred to as name etymology. This will give you a background on the national origin of a name, and often tells you the meaning and history behind it as well. You can research online or at a local library.

first of all u have to make sure that the spelling of your last name is correct. many last names-specially german last names are written differently in american/english. for example 'mueller'-but in german it is 'müller'. than there are a few online pages u can do research. good luck!
