Family Names

The three hundred and fifty-five German-Bohemian family names that are inscribed in the granite tablets that surround the German-Bohemian Immigrant Monument were compiled by Robert Paulson from the U.S. Federal Census records of 1870, 1880, and 1900, and from the Minnesota State Census from 1895 and 1905 as well as histories of several local Catholic parishes.

The family names were verified as having German-Bohemian origins by various members of the Society who certified that members of these families spoke “Böhmish”, the Bohemian dialect of the German language. These names were further verified as having German-Bohemian origins by Rudolf Kiefner, noted Heimatkreisbetreuer [Homeland County Leader] of Bischofteinitz the county from which the vast majority of the families immigrated. Also consulted were a large number of local histories or Heimatbucher from Western Bohemia, which contain many of the same family names.
