Ellen, aka Chief ... the name Latas is usually considered to be Serbian -
any time that I have encountered the name it is connected with Serbia - an
internationally known professor at the University of Belgrade is named
Latas - Serbia was ruled during the mid-1800's by a despot named Latas. The
name appears to be a universal 'generic' name, also associated with some
nationalities. Apparently the ancestors of your Jeff Latas emigrated to the
US from Krakow, Poland. K.L.

Subject: [LATTA] Is this a Latta?
I just got an e-mail from a new Arizona congressional candidate for
district. His name is Jeff Latas. Is he one of ours, or is that a
different name altogether?
