LAZARUS Family History

This is an important European surname, although one of biblical origins. Originally only recorded as a Christian surname, it is one of a major group of such originally Hebrew names which include Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Thomas, Michael and many, many, more, which today form the basis of the surnames lists of the Western hemisphere. These names are known as Crusader surnames. They are Jewish in origin, but were not Jewish when applied in Europe. They were originally introduced into their respective countries and in their individual spellings by returning knights and pilgrims who served on the famous 'Crusades' during the Christian Revival period in the 11th and 12th century.

I am an ancestor of Edward (i believe) Lazarus and Mary Daly who lived in Chicago dring the 1930s. They were from County Kerry and had 13 Children. I am the biological daughter of Elsie Lazarus, their daughter, and was placed for adoption.


Looking for anyone with info on the Lazarus family from County Kerry Ireland who eventually ended up in the US.
