Re: Pofahl family information
Hey all you Pofahls!
My girlfriend is German (Frankfurt)
and lives there and whenever I visit
everyone says to me "Pofahl is no german name!"
In German; "Po" means your bottom or behind
(yes, sorry folks)
and "fahl" is the color pale.
So I set out to disprove this.
Go to familysearch.org (from Yahoo.de)
and it appears we are from Prussia
and/or Pomerania and/or Posen.
Stettin Germany is actuallySzczecin Poland.
Posen is Poznan Poland,
but this name used to mean a huge region of Poland
between the Oder River and the Vistula.
The earliest Pofahls I konw of are all from
Kenosa/Twin Lakes/Burlington WI.
Hi everyone !!!!!
