The Trefzgers

Nicolas told me about the Trefzger last name story.

In the 14th century ... there was a man ... who lived in that area where Nicolas comes from. South Germany....
Really south ... between Swiss and Germany near the Black Forest
Tthere was a valley that time ...so people couldn't live there, because there was a plant growing there .... and it destroyed every other plant
It was like a jungle that valley
People were scared to go there

So that guy went out ... and destroyed that plant and recultured that valley
The plant was called TRESPE and in English the plant is called BROMUS
So, if Nicolas were anEnglish, He'd be Nicholas Bromuskiller :D

Later on, the name was split up :
Trefzger - catholic
Trefzer - protestant
Even today in that village .. almost every one is called still today Trefzger
so Trefzger is a very common name in that area

TREFZGER ... is today a name maybe only around 20 families have WORLDWIDE
Trefzger is very uncommon .. because it is catholic but that area was protestant

His uncle got a book ... with the names of the family who remain today .... all over the world
it was 15 inside, but I guess there are still a few not register ones

The funniest thing is only the people in south Germany know that name
North german people always think it is Russian or something like that and they can't spell it at all LOL
