Wolfgang J. Roehl
You've found the private homepage of Wolfgang Röhl. My family and I live in Ratingen (Germany), a direct neighbour to the City of Düsseldorf.
Why this homepage?
The internet helps me to make contacts for my private activities (for which I have permantly not enough time): exchange information with friends from the U.S.A., Country Music (which is unfortunately not very popular in Germany), Genealogy, shooting and boating.
I enjoy to travel and I've visited - beside of many European countries - Africa (Kenya und Morocco), Japan, Mexico and Canada. But my love belongs to the USA which I've travelled a couple of times: In the North the States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, in the South Florida, Georgia, South-Carolina, Tennessee, Mississipi, Louisiana and Alabama and in the South-West California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada.
What idea is behind the name ROEHL-NET ?
The name Roehl is very popular in the German region of the South Eifel from where all my anchestors come from. About the year of 1850 an unusual big crowd of people has emigrated to the US and other parts of the world, even some of my anchestors. I've already collected a lot data and I know other genealogists. For this I wanna give a signal to other people who are researchers on the same field, and this internet may be easier to find.
What does the wolf mean ?
The name Roehl can be derivated from the name Rudolf which can be further derivated and at the end it means "the renowned wolf". So having two wolfes in the name was reason enough for me to choose the wolf as my personal heraldic animal.
