This site contains the GEDCOM export of the Kindel family
database, which dates to about 1800 and attempts to identify all
the descendants of Simon Kindel and Ursula Lindner, my great3
grandparents. I have also expanded the database for easy
browsing. Simply point your browser to enter the List of Surnames, the List of People, or to start at the
top with Simon Kindel. There
is also a downloadable Kindel
Chart in Portable Data Format, for those who prefer to print it off.
The emphasis of this effort is upon completeness and the
rediscovery of branches of the family with which we have lost touch.
The names, dates, and locations are not backed up with formal
documentation. I am indebted to Kathryn Brown, Curtis Clay, Dan Kindel, Mary Margaret Kindel, and Celia Said for the wealth of
information they have provided for their respective branches of the
Kindel clan. I have also included a collection of scanned photos and documents for your perusal.
The information on this site is largely unverified.
upon for formal genealogical research.
Families are dynamic. There are births, deaths, marriages, and
divorces. These databases are always in need of updates,
which is why this page is dated.
Please report any errors or omissions to myself or to the other
family genealogists mentioned above. Many thanks in advance to
each of you for your contributions.
I am also indebted to Dan Pidcock for his PERL script getcomToHTML.pl and its accompanying gedcomToHTML.prefs, both of which are
included here, along with the g2h package,
of which they are part. I used them to create the Kindel Family
which graces this part of the web site, and which is not dependent on
any particular Genealogical software.
