Welcome to our new genealogy database. This software, which has been developed by TNG (The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding) has so many features that we have not yet explored them all. We invite you to help us with information, photos, copies of documents, etc. Just about anything you can contribute has a place in this database.
We presently have four separate "trees" or data files. These are the West Prussian - Polish branch, the Bas Rhin branch, the Czechoslovakian Branch, and the last is a file extracted for the IGI at www.familysearch.org.
