I too just started researching my Pulver line. I have two Wandals in my line. I didn't think that this was a common name until I found this site. Are these Wandals related? I have a Wandal born around 1793 and his son in 1833. I am descended from James (brother to second Wandal) 1833 - 1908. Wandal had 12 children - John, Sylvia, Betsy, Henry, Egbert, Salena, Charity, Wandal, James, Samantha, Myron and Harmon. They mostly lived in the upstate NY area. Does anyone have knowledge of any of these Pulvers?
