Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

"Kleinhampl - my dictionary says it is created from German name Heimbrecht, where heim = home and brecht = great, ie. small great home"[1]

One variant is Klein, which some of the folks who immigrated to the US used after living here awhile. I haven't found in any my own lineage, but in the other main Kleinhampl family in the US, which settled in the Pittsburgh area.

I've recently learned that for females, the suffix "ova" is sometimes, or often, added to their Czech surname. So, I have two questions: #1) Is this an important distinction to make? It does not seem to be in wide use on WikiTree. Right now, there are only about 10 profiles with LNAB "Kleinhamplova". However, it would be good if, when one searches for "Kleinhampl", the search results also included "Kleinhamplova". This leads to my second question: Is there a way to make that happen?

Hello Colleen,

When looking at records, yes, it's important to know that women often had a modified version of the male surname. In regard to your second question, it would be best asked in G2G so the WikiTree Tech Team can take a look at what it might take to make that happen. Most people follow only the male version of the surname, and assume most people will use that when searching for information.
