Hi ! I live in Poland and my surname is -Begier.
I know nothing about my origin - is it German name, or French?
I used to think that the name is of Jewish origin but it doesn't seem to be true.
Well, can You (or anybody?) help me with answering these simple - as they SEEM:-) to be- questions.
I am the absolute beginner in genealogy so I would be really grateful for some hints and help.

the name is french in origin; there are still begiers living in the alsace region of france; most live in germany; fewer in poland; my father's father was born in poland; i have corresponded with begiers in poznan; their family was born only a short distance from mine but we were never able to find a common ancestors; the begiers were roman catholic at least going back to 1845; research is difficult; only the roman catholic church kept records; you would have to go to the diocese where your family started and research their records; this will not be easy as the records were recorded in latin in gallic script. i gave up
