my name is luke (or lucas) galutia. i am currenly trying to track the name "resh galutia" or his decendants who may have moved into galicia spain into the 11th and 12th centurys under the surname galutia. it is know that there is a family coat of arms there. with the colors red and silver, and a lion standing in front of a castle.

in truth, his name was most probably "Mar 'Ukba II, Exilarch (-337)"
who was an exilarch of the jews in the babylonian desporah. the name "Resh galuta" was probly held onto by members of the family as was the coustom with jews who were despersed outside Israel. they claim desendace from king david. so it is a davidic line. i was wondering if anyone may have any more information? i'm quite interested to find more out.
