About the Hartuch surname

This surname occurs in Alexander Beider's book 'A Dictionary of Jewish surnames from Galicia' and comes from the Krakow district of Poland. Galicia used to be part of the Austro-Hungarian kingdom. The Austrians gave the Jews surnames. Hartuch means a 'shawl' from the German words 'haar' (hair) and 'tuch' (cloth).

Three versions of this surname are 'Hartuch' 'Haartuch ' and 'Hertuch'. My own ancestor -Marianne Hertuch -was born about 1805 in Offenbach Germany, though I believe her father, Stefan Hertuch, probably originated in the Galicia region of Poland. Marianne emigrated to Cuba.
