Knauf Family Genealogy Forum
The annual family reunion will be held the first weekend in June, as always on Pentecost Sunday which is 6 weeks after Easter each year. We are lucky to be from a small family where everyone with our name is probably related. We have a well organized Familienverband (Family Union) in Germany that has researched our line back to the 12th century (see link below):
My bicentennial project in 1976 was to go through U.S. phone books where I found about 400 in our nation with our name and its variations and mailed them to the Family Union as when I visited them in the 70's, they were anxious to rekindle connections to cousins elsewhere. Of course what took me weeks then can now be done in minutes with Internet search engines! We have a great family and I found where we get our family traits such as a hard work ethic, and emphasis on education. Our gene pool may be diluted over generations, but attitudes and values are being passed on.
