Here are some of my research results. At the moment I have about
1000 names in my database. From each person I can find a path
to another person. My research is not limited to the ususal 'time-in-depth'
research. I look into the width as well. For that reason I included
a family tree of my brother's wife which reaches way back into
the 14th century. In the moment I see my work in the sense of
'digital conservation of the already available knowledge'.
Right now I am working on a database of all SCHNELLs which I
can reach. This database has already grown to a decent size and
includes Schnells from the 'former German areas' in Russia in
the East and up to Canada in the West.
If you carry the birthname SCHNELL please send me an email
with the following information: Firstname, Lastname, Birthdate,
Birthplace and relevant data of your father/mother. I will keep
that data in my research database. I will get back to you should
I ever find a link to someone else in my database.
THANK YOU !
All collected data is being used only for my private hobby and
will by no means used for any commercial purposes. I will not
publish invidual data of my research database as long as their
is no link to my official familiy tree.
List of names
List of individuals
In the context of the familiy research I stumbled across family
relationships and their names. While definied relatively formal
and very well in the English speaking community it is a bit more
of an adventure in my own mother tongue. Hence, here is what I
found out for English and German
speaking readers of this page.
