Re: URBAN from Prussia, Germany

Don't rule out other spellings of the name when searching for your Urban's parents. My 2nd great grandmother used URBAN, as did her siblings, but her parents are found as both URBAN and URBANIAK. They were from the portion of Poland taken over by Prussia which then became part of the German Empire, so their place of origin is found as "Prussia," "Prussian Poland," "Germany," etc.

Good luck in your search.

Patti
