Kraus Genealogy & History

Kraus is a German surname from the Old Middle German Krus. It was used as a nickname for people with curly hair, much like the English Crisp or Cripps. Nicknames were a common source for surnames when governments began to require people to have them, especially in a large city, where there might be many members of a particular profession. Kraus family history enters the books with Edle Von Kraus, noted as a resident of Vienna in 1681. Kraus genealogy boasts of many famous members, such as rock-climbing pioneer Hans Kraus, Ukrainian General Anton Kraus, and Czech jurist Oskar Kraus.
