With a surname like Pospisil, as a kid, as you can imagine, I got every variation possible, including John Impossible. As I was making breakfast for the family this morning, this came to mind, and now as an almost 40 year old, that wasn’t such a bad nickname after all. After all, the best things that one can do are the ones that others consider impossible. I intend to live up to my name.

Hi John. I stumbled on your site as I was searching for ancestors and a history of the family name. We were apparently Pospisils, a number of generations ago, though the name was changed when the family immigrated to America in the mid 1800′s(I live in Oz now, though). I guess I am just trying desperately to find out something about our name, and to find my great-great grandfather’s birthplace. We were told he came from Austria, but in census records he’s been listed as coming from Bohemia, Bavaria, Czechoslovakia, and Germany! So much confusion for me. Anyway, if you are interested in helping shed some light on the mystery, I’d love to hear what you have to say. Otherwise, thanks for your time! And by the way, we used to have fun with the family name, too. No one could understand it at all, either! Kind regards, Barbara


Great info to my mind. Thank you for providing that information.
