Subject: HOFMANN's from Bavaria
Date: Fri, 18 Aug 2000 13:41:46 EDT
[I am posting this message to this list because I am aware that there are a
lot of people from Bavaria with the surname HOFMANN (and variations).]
I have created a free, interactive website to help my fellow Bavarian
researchers locate others who are researching Bavarian surnames in common and
hopefully make connections with distant family members. It mainly consists
of an index of surnames with automatic email links to contact the various
participating researchers. Currently the website has 224 submitters with
over 1,300 surnames (currently, there are 5 researchers who have submitted
the surname HOFMANN (and variations). All of these people have indicated a
willingness to be contacted via email to discuss their Bavarian genealogical
interests. Additionally, there is a page of links to explain naming
Bavaria FAQ's and a link to another site which contains many queries of those
researching Bavarian surnames (including HOFMANN).
If you have ancestors from Bavaria (and Bavaria ONLY, please) you might like
to browse the index for your own surnames and/or submit your surnames to be
included in the index. Again, this is free, open to any and all who have
research interests in Bavaria only. The only requirement is that the surname
belong to a person who once lived in Bavaria. I. E., Jewish surnames from
Russia ARE allowed as well as surnames of people from the Pfalz, which once
was part of Bavaria.
Please also feel free to pass on the URL to any other lists you may be a
member of who have other members with Bavarian ancestors.
