Michael: I'm surprised that you are looking to Americans to find out more about Dunkelbergers. We are al scratching our heads trying to figure out where our ancestors came from, and you are right there? At any rate, we seem to have come from Solingen area, and the original name was Dunckelnberg -- which you might know means "from the dark mountain." Also, the recorded progenitor of the family was Engel of Ufer, born about 1566. According to my German/English dictionary, that tranlates to "Angel of the River Bank." Do these names have any significance in Germany?
