Welcome to the pages of our family tree

Family tree

Family is like a tree.
The branches may grow in different directions,
but the roots hold everything together.

   We provide this online family tree to allow all persons and families connected here to view and complete information. All aspects of family news from the past, present and future are collected here without judgement.

   If you have family connections to people in our collection, we invite you to register for a free membership under "Request new user account". This will also give you access to much more information. Without registration, data, images and sources of still living persons cannot be viewed.

   This collection of family data is constantly growing and certainly contains errors. We would be grateful if you would help us with corrections, even if you think they are insignificant. We are always interested in additional information, pictures or documents, to better describe people's lives. Really any comment is welcome. We would like to express our special thanks to all those who have already contributed to the completion of our common data collection.

   PLEASE NOTE: The data is subject to the general German data protection rules. If you wish to use data or receive further information, please contact us.
You can find further information under "FAQ".
