Looking for Hofferts from Kolbuszowa #poland #galicia #names


Carl Kaplan
 

The Hoffert branch of my family came from Kolbuszowa, Galicia (now Poland). It's not a common name, and given the size of Kolbuszowa, I received some scholarly agreement with my assertion that there is a high probability that all the Hofferts from Kolbuszowa likely came from one family who took on the name in 1787. I can go back to around 1815. I only found 3 occurrences in the Family Finder, so I thought I would post here. Given there are no surviving vital records for Kolbuszowa, I am hoping that those descendant Hofferts may have done DNA testing, as my results are on all the major sites. I look forward to hearing from more Hofferts, and finding connections. Thanks.
