Hi Jeff, I see you too have done Urban Opp research. I would love to be able to go back even further. Do you know if anyone has had any luck with this or where a I could begin this research. There are "stories" of Opp surname possibly being the Jewish name, Oppenheimer and that the name was changed to avoid persecution. And then some say we are related to the Opp's that arrived in America prior to the Revolutionary War, these Opps originally came from Germany. If you have any information or some direction for me it would greatly be appreciated!
