It is new for me that there is a website to hear something about my name. It is or it was my opinion that the Damms family is a small one most coming from Germany. In the German phone directory you can identify about 32 Damms and I know only 20%. They are most living in North Germany mostly in the state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. I´m living near Heidelberg and I know the Damms roots back to the 19th century. My forefather came from Stettin Prussia (today Poland)and settled over to Rügen (about 1850) as administrator of a church estate in Schmantewitz near Wiek. From the Wiek pastor we get some copies of the church cronicle where we hear of an unknown 4. child. That could be one root of Damms people spread over Germany and the world.
