Genealogy by Harry D. Zook: Zug, Zuck, Zouck, Zook. Chapter one "Journey from the Past"

This page is dedicated to my Zucck Family. The surname Zaugg (Zougg), from which the spellings Zouck, Zug, Zuck and Zook have been derived, is of ancient Swiss origin. In early times, people with this name were found primarily in the valley of the Emme River (Emmental) which comprises a large section of present day Canton Bern. The name bears no relationship to the Canton of Zug, although unforyunately thius suggestion has been widely adopted, probably based on its appearance in a popular book on the Pennsylvania German and Swiss colonists published early in this century. (Oscar Kuhns, The German and Swiss Settlements of Colonial Pennsylvania, New York: Eaton and Mains 1901)
