The pedigree chart above shows where each ancestor fits in. The
expanded pedigree chart includes
70 additional German ancestors who predate the above pedigree chart.
Research began in July 1999 and found its way into written biographies
as a way of sharing research with family members. In 2001, a wonderful
collection of old family photographs surfaced along with original
documents dating to 1864. Internet images of German villages, churches,
and maps along with German village history books rounded out the research,
telling each ancestor's unique story in words and pictures.
This research is an individual project with the exception our Robrecht
ancestors, whose research was greatly enriched by the efforts of
our cousin, George Meister of Munich, Germany, and his sister, Anne
Meister of Arlington, VA, who are descendants of Elisabeth Robrecht's
brother, Anton Robrecht.
I hope you enjoy reading about our German ancestors as much as
I enjoyed writing about them!
