Variations of the Foos Name
Posted by: Maryanne Swontek (ID *****2123) Date: June 19, 2006 at 16:24:47

I've been researching my Foos' for about 4 years now and I have found Foos spelled several different ways. I have found them under Fuchs, Fofs, Foose, Fusz, Fuss. So keep these variations in mind when researching. My Foos family came over on the Laura from Mittlesdorf to Baltimore, Maryland in the spring of 1870. That was my ggrandfather Conrad Fusz (that was the spelling on the passenger list)along with his wife Magdalena Kellner and their daughters Augusta 3/12 and Anna A 1. I have found several birth records with Fofs, Fuss, Foose. Is there anyone that is researching this line of Foos' or can help me research my German ancestors from 1870 and back. Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you
Maryanne
