My granfather was Otto John Paul Hoeflich. So of course my mothers maiden name is Hoeflich. I never knew there were any other Hoeflichs around part from a distant uncle who is still in Germany. I am just curious to see if there is a connection with anyone. All I know is my ancestors or the first Hoeflich in our family was from Germany and he married some lady from Britain, they ended up in Western Samoa and that's how we came about in the end.
