    FamilySearch.org shows 70 entries for ASZKLAR surname born in Poland, Austria (Hungary assumed) or Galicia.  Many times these are used interchangeably.  Can depend on time period being researched.

    GALICIA:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galicia_(Eastern_Europe)

    GEDmatch.com shows 51 GEDCOM (Family Trees) with ASZKLAR surname on them.  Same email address is associated with nearly all 51 entries.  Once you know the GEDCOM file name (9672480 in this case), you can look up GEDmatch usernames to see if they also submitted a DNA test.  GEDmatch is great because it accepts DNA from ALL companies.  And, it is free.

    My Heritage shows 3723 family trees or record databases with ASZKLAR surname on them.  First few pages appear to be from Poland.  You can narrow search by including additional information such as first name, birth - death - or marriage date, spouse's name, etc.

    Many sources have said Aszklar is not a polish name. Finally Wikipedia showed Asiklar (a comma beneath the s) could also refer to Ardanuc (comma beneath the c),and  IIgaz. I It was suggested to me by a specialist om Polish names, that he felt Aszklar was not a Polish name at all, but perhaps a Slavic name.  But census information for the few Aszklars I could find,  showed their homeland as Austria Poland. (1920 US Census) So then I searched a Slovakia Genealogy Research Strategies site, which said that North East Slovakia along with bordering regions of Poland and Ukraine, contain the largest concentration of ethnic Rusyns in Europe.  So,I am wondering if the name Aszklar could actually be rusyn?
