Holoch Geneology Breakthrough Thanks to The DXCC Sleuth

Zedler seems to be a reference of related German names – people, geography, etc  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Heinrich_Zedler 


This from my DXCC Sleuth post on The Czech Republic – OK2SW:

  1. There are some Czech names that seem related to where my family originated from – like Neckar – which is the name of the river where all of my relatives live near – almost a tribe of sorts. The name Holoch is a fairly rare German name – I have often wondered if it is actually a name of people who migrated to Germany from some other place – I found this entry at this web site: https://books.google.com/books?id=iL5deaY7BaEC&pg=PA135&lpg=PA135&dq=earl+of+holoch&source=bl&ots=aFfnUoHYE5&sig=NLVbrHz5qaHO4PdzNmQ-AMzQnts&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwje1-3m4PXaAhWKh1QKHeGpBloQ6AEINzAE#v=onepage&q=earl%20of%20holoch&f=false
    while its talking about the history of England – it references the Earl of Holoch from Bohemia, which would have been pre-Czechosolvakia near Bavaria, Germany. In fact, I may have just found a connection that I couldn’t find years back when I tried to trace the Holoch name. I was under the impression that my name was Von Hohenloch – because I stumbled on a coat of arms from 1156. I never trusted that – since there are scammers out there who make such things up. HOWEVER, this web site: https://www.zedler-lexikon.de/index.html?c=suchtreffer&ganzeswort=FALSE&suchbegriff=Hohenlohe&sortierschluessel=id&id=475305&maxtrefferzahl=25&l=deIt is entirely possible that Holoch is related to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hohenlohe-Langenburg
