My last name is Allred. It is English and has been traced back to the 14th century. My Grandmother on my Father's side had the last name Doss. Which I have researched to be a German family name originating in the Hamburg area. Unfortunately that is all I can find out about it as most of my family has passed. Have any of you guys heard of the last name Doss?

In my genealogy research and in my names research I've come to realize that a lot of names in English are mutated from the originals. When looking for "Doss" look at all names that would sound the same or similar. When looking for names that can be translated, look at the words they might have been translated from. Lots of Blacks and Whites in Virginia came to North America as Schwarz and Weiss. Occupation names are also translated. Schmidt becomes Smith, etc. You might also look for synonyms within German. Doss can translate to Schlaf. People change names for many reasons, sometimes before they leave home completely.

This research can be a lot of fun! Best luck with it! :hug:

Spelling can also be optional. Standard spelling is a fairly recent thing.

A family might use "Doss" so that people would not call them "Dos" (in Latin it sounds like "dose"). Looking at old census records, you can find brothers with different spellings. :?

Could it be you're confused with the Latin Dormia( to sleep ,In French Dormir)? Dos means dowry, as far as I know.
My mothers surname was Braß, later changed into Brass. So the former spelling is indeed just a wild guess.
hehehe Had to smile at your Schwarz and Weiss story
I know three different Schwarz's and they are whiter than white , while Barry White....... :lol: :lol: ( The exception proves the rule :wink: )

So far all the German (or possibly German) names in my family tree are: Schneiter(my last name), Menken, Wagner, Schwabe, Schwartz, Ruel, Kintner, Lamb/Lahm, Leydig/Leidig, Doerr, Holtz, Hauck, Werdetz, Crietz, Gerhard, Gobel/Goebel, Frantz, Meuer, Beck, Kirst, Konradt, Lind, Katz, Wuchter, Bauer, Ziegler, Siegert, Schrap, Gabel, Schoenberg.....wow, didn't realize there were so many until I typed them out. I've come to the conclusion that in my family tree, I have maybe one or two branches on both sides consisting of English & possible Irish ancestors-everyone one else is German :)

Hmm, I'm not sure. If so, we'd be distantly related-my 12th & 13th great grandfathers along with about 5 or 6 others had the surname of Lahm.
