I've recently done some research on my family tree. Had quite a bit of luck on my father's side. Someone else had already done it. Turns out I have lots more German in me than I realized.

On my mother's side there's: Schneiter (my last name) & Schwarz. Then on my father's side there is: Menken, Schwabe, Wagner, Kintner (?), Best (?)....I always knew that on set great grandparents on my mother's side were German immigrants, I just didn't know much about my father's side until a week or so ago. My great grandfather was a German immigrant who married a woman who's father was also a German immigrant & who's mother was the great granddaughter of German immigrants. Its amazing what you can find out when you google your name & your father's name....

This is interesting, my last name is Patterson which I guess is Scottish and Irish, but a number of people on both my mom and my dad's side were German, but their names kind of didn't get preserved so to speak, so I don't have any evidence to back up my ancestry. :P I do know that one of my ancestors was a German immigrant who fought in the (American) Civil War, because we got a letter over the summer saying something about how my ancestor had won a medal or something for his deeds in the war. I think his last name was either Federmann or Fettermann. I'm not sure. Also complicating things is that my dad's father was born out of wedlock, and he was adopted immediately after he was born, and he changed his surname... and he refuses to talk about it, so no one really knows what his real family was like. (My grandpa is kind of kooky. I don't mean any disrespect at all, but he tends to be rude and he never got close to his children or to me.)

Sorry this is kinda late, but I thought this was an interesting topic.

He comes from Läuft (sp). I can't find it on any maps or I'm not spelling it right.

Can anybody tell me a little information about Prussia? I have read some things but don't really understand :oops:

To understand anything one must know that formerly the country was not divided into provinces (as it does now) But this has changed again and again. There were also several earlier rulers have governed the country at the same time (not that it belongs together) There was then in the north of Germany, the Prussian (with Frederick the Great, etc) and at the same time there were in southern Bayern (with King Ludwig the 2nd, etc.). from this division before it was hundreds of years was the source of a kind of love-hate relationship between Bavaria and Prussia. But of course there was over the years, many tribes that make up then put together the German people has until it became what it is today


i hope that helped :D :lol:

there are a lot of the families with a name ending in "czyk. This is historical. Because many people have relatives in Upper Silesia, and they have inherited the Polish / Upper Silesian names (including me) It's best to googel times thereafter.

^ Would this be the same case for name like Kaczmarski, too? THAT sure sounds like a Polish name to me. :?
