ProudRoots 1 | 32 7 Nov 2013 #1Hello all, new member to the forum here.Just had a question about my Polish ancestry, I am a proud Polish American. Does anyone know about the surname 'Dobbert'? The surname does not sound very Polish, though I have performed research and found a source that says the surname is derived from 'dobru' which apparently means something in the Old Slavic Language. Very interesting. Not sure if I can link it to you or not.Second off, something tells me it is Kashub, because my Polish roots actually trace back to Pomerania, where my ancestors, the Polish ethnics, had lived. And many Kashubs apparently reside in Pomerania, so that tells me something. Also, I was studying Kashub surnames, and I had discovered that there was a Kashub surname, 'DOBEK' which to me, sounds like Dobbert, could be a variant, eh?I'd like to know what you guys think, and if you have any more information. Thanks.Not sure if this helps but my Polish Dobbert ancestors were from Pomerania but had settled in Wisconsin, were many Kashubs happen to settle. Yet another reason it may be Kashub.
