A lot of people think that they are related to THE Andreas Hofer, freedomfighter from Austria. It is highly unlikely that there are any male descendents of Andreas Hofer living today. But there is always a chance that an unknown male descendent might be found, however slim. I invite you all to do research on your familyline and find proof that you are related! And please, present your data to me so I can compare it to the data I have.
The facts presented on this site show that there aren’t any male descendants living today!
So most likely: from male lines (which is normal in genealogy) there aren’t any descendants alive today. But from female lines there are!
The family Holzknecht is such a line, founded by a marriage between an Hofer (female) and an Holzknecht (male). These are true descendants!
