Thank you so much for your reply. Others have written to me saying that the name is Slovenian. Our family was told it came from the German name, Koehler.
The history of your people is very interesting. I am going to add it to my genealogy work for future generations to read.
Congratulations on taking part in the politics of your country. It takes a special person to want to be a part of the governing body.
Thank you again for your reply.
