Gruber Family Tree

FAMILY ORIGINS

The Gruber family resided in Hrubieszow, Poland. The family was Orthodox Jewish.

I created a website to memorialize Jewish Hrubieszow.

The following photo was submitted to Yad Vashem. Pictured is Aron Gruber, a wagoner in Hrubieszow. This Aron Gruber is probably a relative, but I am not sure how he is related. This Aron Gruber was born around 1913, the son of Juda and Rachel Kremer Gruber.



SURNAME ORIGINS

Three possible origins exist: 1) From gruobe or "pit", a topographic name for someone who lived in a depression or hollow; 2) Eastern Ashkenazic nickname from an inflected form of Yiddish dialect, grub or "rude"; or 3) A name randomly distributed by government officials.



If you see any connections in the below, please contact me.
