About the Furman surname

Please visit my Fuhrman(n)-Furman Surname Project, hosted by FamilyTreeDNA ( This project seeks to unravel the lineages of the Germanic surname Fuhrmann and its spelling variants. Fuhrmann is an occupational surname that means "carter" or "drayman" (i.e., teamster). As with other occupational surnames, people with this surname are not necessarily related genetically. Both Christians and Jews have this surname. However, this project addresses only the supposedly-Christian lineages: Jewish lineage research requires a somewhat different genealogical skill set.
