PLEASE HELP with surname translation and alternate spellings
Posted by: Teal Hefner (ID *****7574) Date: December 25, 2011 at 17:04:03

Hello!

I am trying to trace a person in the United States (Pennsylvania) who's last name is a bit tricky. His surname was " Zeigrest" which sounds like a German surname. I used an online translator from English to German and it says it means "show remainder." Then when I searched it backwards it said that "show remainder" in German was "Zeigen sie Rest." Does anyone know what "show remainder" means? Does this surname look familiar to any native German's? If so, are there alternate spellings? Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!
