Hi,

My name is Mandy and my grandmother recently died and so when I am finally interested in learning more about my family and their surname - I can't get information from her. My grandfather's name was Clarence Getty and I never met him and don't know much about him - except that he was from North Dakota, had six children, after he moved to San Fransico and married my grandmother.

I'm curious to know where the name Getty originates from. I've heard either Ireland or Scotland - is this correct? If you have any information on this surname it would be appreciated.
