About the Preuss surname

Preuss nation and family may be related to Praisi ( Prawisi) tribe of antique India near Ganga river around city Pali(m)bothra ,who might have gone there from among Balt people in Kashmir and Tibet along the rivers of North India,and might have had their original homeland in the European Baltic region or in one near to it .

Palibothra's name may refer to the presence of Pali and Bod people there : Pali-Bod-Herra .

It was also the city Sandrokott,likely son of Alexander of Makedonia ruled in under the local name of Bin-Dusara,and some of his subjects might have taken part in the raid over Delphoi and Makedonia when returning to Europe under the leadership of Brenn about 279 .b.c.,called then Prausi nation . Their Gangarida compatriots,likely related to Dariganga in Mongolia too and descending from A'araya-Da son of Ganda,might have been the source of some of Matsi-Ganga people in America also . They must have went there with Bun-Dusara's son ,Ashoka,who occupied Hiero-Solyxma on the Holy Land of America some years later .

The name of Badakhshan,under the rule of Alexander's descendants,may also go back to Balt-Dakshan

that is Southern Baltic - compared to the one near Scandinavia .

Burusho nation thereby may also be in some kinship with Borussians and may descend from Borysthenés that is of Dionys .
