My surname is Oschar, i have tried many times to locate the origins of my Surname in German ancestry, but no luck!. Its difficult and a hard time tracing back my ancestry due to mostly the main parts of our family was killed during the second World War (after the end of the war we are not Jewish)!.
Our grandfather was Friedrich Oschar, he was a German soldier with the Waffen SS (meaning our blood line had to be traced some how for him to even join so the Surname most've existed one time or another since the SS were strict on these matters) and unfortunately we never spoke and died before I met him, same for my grandmother!. I am of German decent, but there is no information about my surname, my father does not know either!.
I am puzzled about my origins its sad because I have no relatives to relate to expect my Father, Mother and two brothers and a Aunt (fathers sister) here in America!.
From what I've gathered it was a common first name for males in Germany, but never a surname and nothing more!.
I was wondering if anyone could perhaps shed some light on the matter for me!?
I would highly appreciate it!.
Thank you all
