Hello everyone. I'm hoping to find out more information about the origin of my surname.
I always was told it was most likely a bastardization of the name 'Imhoff', which is German/Swiss in origin. Given the relatively few numbers of Emoffs that I know of in the world, I figured it may have been a localized occurance here in Canada. However, while browsing passenger manifests from Ellis Island, I came across actual Emoffs, both of whome were from Bulgaria. One person, with a spelling of Emhoff, was from Romania. Might anyone here know more about the surname Emoff or its possible origins?
