General Information About These DataPlease bear in mind, as you browse the materials presented, that these data are work in progress. It is not my intention that these these pages be taken as a citable source. Rather, it is my hope that you may find we have some ancestor(s) in common, and that this discovery may prompt you to contact me to establish an exchange of information.
Because of privacy concerns, I now make public only the following subset of our data:
- All known ancestors in my direct lines, from my great-grandparents back.
- My siblings, parents and grandparents.

AttributionsThe research you see here is the result of a collaborative effort and I wish to acknowledge that much of the information contained in these pages has been provided by other researchers:
- Much of the early research on my direct SCHWITZGEBEL line was done by Harry Schwitzgebel and Gilbert Schwitzgebel.
- Later, Barbara (Lawrence) Schwitzgebel and Bernard Schwitzgebel got involved and filled in a lot of blanks in the SCHWITZGEBEL data, as well as fleshing out the BREEHL and PHILLIPPI lines.
- Bernard Schwitzgebel has also added much information on the ABEL and SCHWITZGEBEL lines, from interviews with cousins still living in Germany.
- Information on the GRIGGY/CRIQUI, BAUMAN, and PAULUS families was gathered by Lois (Griggy) Schwitzgebel.
- The core data on the ANDES and KNAPP
lines is extracted from
Richard Schrader and Mary Jayne Aylward. The Descendants of PETER ANDES, SR. and MARIA ANNA ARTZ Through Four Generations in America Including the History of the Schroeder (Schrader) Family. Richard Schrader, 1983.
Because of geographical proximity of the families, Schrader's research also provides some information on the CRIQUI/CREQUE and PAULUS lines.
- Peter Bidinger has contributed substantial research on the KNAPP and PAULUS lines.
- Much of the information about the HOUDE/HUTH/HOOT lines are extracted, with permission, from the research of Paul V. Hoot.
