I have done a lot of research into my heritage and Michael Karl born in Bohemia in 1740 is the furthest I can find anywhere. His wife's maiden name is Regina but i can't find her first name anywhere either. If anyone has any information on any of this please contact me.
Michael karl, has a son Christopher Karl and a daughter Walpurga Karl. Christopher married Margaretha Schuster, and they had children Thomas and margaretha karl.
Thomas then married Anna Schramm. They had 4 kids, Joesph, Wenzl, Anna and Andreas. Joesph married Anna turnwald and had children then moved to New Zealand.
I have information on all of the people i have mentioned. And heaps more people, especially the New Zealand Karls. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
I have heard from different people that the Karl name was made up once fled from Germany to get away from going to war. I have also heard that this is false and Karl is a shortened version of another longer last name. Can anyone tell me any more on either of these rumours or confirm either one of them?
