My Family Tree

Overview of my family tree ¦ My own page in the family tree ¦ Additional direct links in the index below.

Thanks to the work of previous generations, my family tree can be traced back for centuries. It is a labor of love to transcribe all of this to the Web, learning something about my roots in the process. In doing this, I sorely miss my parents who could have told me a lot of things that I should have remembered when it comes to my late 19th and early 20th century relatives. For instance, there are many anonymous photos in the family archive that they could have identified.

Stammbaum der Familie ZenkerThe Zenker family history is well documented thanks to the labors of a certain Max Zenker in Leipzig, Germany, who published "Stammbaum der Familie Zenker", i.e. family tree, around 1900. As a result, there is a good record of the Zenker history up to 1900, but I have no information at all concerning my present distant relatives - descendants of the persons described. Perhaps this can be added in the future? See the appeal in the Preface by Max Zenker (in German).

I have included the complete text of the "Stammbaum" in German. Unfortunately, the tree itself is in the somewhat awkward format of 20 cm by 150 cm - folded up in the book, of course - which is not very convenient for scanning. Instead I have decided to cut my family to pieces! Each page shows one person with parents, spouse and children. This means a lot of hopping around to find cousins and uncles, but it keeps the diagrams simple with space to include text and photos, when available.

My maternal ancestors can be found in the Swedish pages (or by starting from my mother here).

I have used the following conventions in the diagrams: Blue for males, red for females. White for in-laws (i.e. carrying the Zenker name only through marriage). The subject of each page is indicated with a red border. Spouses are joined with a line. Parents and children are identified by their position over or under the subject of each diagram.
