Re: Carnleys are German

The commonly held traditional view is that we are Irish. No one to my knowledge, however, has produced any documentation proving it. Melissa Boyen has recently found documentation which provides very strong evidence that our Carnley ancestors were German, and our ancestral name was Kornlein (pronounced like Kernline). Over time, Kernline became anglicized to Carnline, then shortened to Carnley. If you will send me your email address, I will email you a copy of Melissa's documentation.
