    I need help translating this surname

    Below are 2 images of my great-grandmas surname. It is written in Old German, so if someone could translate it to High German, that would be great!

    Are you sure that's a surname and not an ethnicity, Galicyjskij (Galician)?

    Yes, the documents that the text appears on are my grandfather's birth papers and her marriage papers. Other names such as my grandpas name and my great grandpas name are written there as well but we cannot decipher my great-grandma's surname.
