Amtzell (state Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany)
Wangen (state Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany)
there are a lot of fimpel around. Quite a common name there. additional i sent you an e-mail i (better my uncle wolfgang) have received some weeks ago (see below).
i checked the wulkow connection, but unfortunately i haven't found a hint about any fimpel up there in the north east of germany. but please feel free to check the links again:

My name is Jay Fimple.I live in Vinita, Oklahoma, U.S.We have started a website www.fimple.com
My ancestor came over on a ship called the Phoenix in 1752.His name was Johannes Fimpel (and family).We are trying to connect all of the Fimpels/Fimples here in the U.S.There don't seem to be that many.Is Fimpel a common name over in Germany?
Here is my main question.I was told by a professor of Medieval History that the old Castle Wulkow was once owned by the Fimpel family and he also said that one of the Fimpels in the old country was a knight.Thus making all of his descendants eligible for membership in one of several Knightly Orders.Are you familiar with any of this and would you be interested in discussing it?
