In Reply to: my sroufe family by matt sroufe of 153

Matt, Col. Dave explained somewhere in his book that his computer program would not handle all the different variations of Schroff, so he settled on the "original" spelling. Some of the Schroffs apparently changed the name when they came to this country, but since there are no Sroufes or Shroufes in Germany, I suspect the original name of Schroff is correct. The "Schroffs" with that spelling are definitely in the minority in this country.
