Hi, I am trying to fiqure out some of my family history. The origin of pohl means "by a lake or stream". The bad part about it is Hitler's last name almost means the same thing "by a river".

Pohl - Hitler?

Jason, That is a real stretch. Hitler was
Austrian and I am sure he was insane. Just
because they both mean near water means
absolutely nothing. If my dad had seen you
comparing them he would have blown up, he
fought in WWII against the Nazis.
Did you know that Pohl is also the German
version of Paul???

Jason, Sorry if I overreacted earlier. But
I grew up in the 50's when the memories of the war were all too fresh and I heard that
I was a Nazi a lot because I am German. It
made an all too strong impact on me that
lingers to this day. Didn't mean to jump all
over you because of it though.

Hello Jason,

the surname "Pohl" does not mean "by the river or
by the lake". Pohl is a German surname. I found out two
different explanation for its origin. One says "someone who
trades with Poles" the other derives the name from
the word "Pfuhl" which is an obsolete word for "swamp".
Pohl is in Germany quite a common name, but it originally came
from the former Eastern German provinces.

There is no connection to the name "Hitler" which is an Austrian
name that was probably derived from "Hiedler".

If you want to know more about your ancestry
you should find out from which German town your
family once came. With this information you can contact
the Mormones who have thousands of German "churchbooks"
(I don't know the correct English expression, I mean
the book, where the local priest wrote down births, marriages etc.).

Best wishes

Andreas

Frank, because Schivelbein belonged to the former Kreis ( County ) Belgard-Schivelbein in Pommerania, I would be very pleased if you include your datas into the Kreis Belgard-Schivelbein researchers list. Please contact me.

Hi, my mother is Barbara Meyer, born Pohl. Her ancestor, Carl Friedrich Pohl, son of Ephraim Pohl, arrived in Cape Town in 1793. He married Hester Isabella Marx in 1799 and they had ten children. In each generation the eldest sons were named after Carl Friedrich, which was also the name of my great grandfather. The Pohl decendants are scattered throughout the country and many are musicians, artists, writers and even an actress of note. Do you have any earlier European history of the Pohl family? Let's hear from you!
