Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Arms of Krupp lists a family tree, but only through the heir. In other words the first Arndt had five children, but only Georg and then Georg's son Matthias and his descendants are followed. Matthias had four children. His son Arnold is next in line for heir so the other three children are not mentioned.
It is a very strange genalogy list. I would like to send you a xerox copy of it because I wouldn't want to make a mistake. Do you want it? If you send me your address I'll be happy to mail it. I have printed your information and will try to match it with the genalogy from the book. At this point it is confusing so I must study it and put it together. There's a lot of royalty there. I know only that my Great Grandfather was a "Gentleman Farmer" which could mean he was wealthy. When he came to the U.S. he bought a farm in Troy, New York but eventually lost it. I presume because he never actually did the work on his farm in Germany and didn't know how to manage without an overseer of some kind. After he lost his farm, he moved to Long Island, N.Y. where he resided with my grandmother. My 97 year old aunt, gave me a written history of the family as best she could remember, but I seem to be hitting blank walls all the time. My Aunt became senile shortly after she wrote the history, so I could get no more information from her.
Thank you Daniel, for enclosing your history. The Krupp side of the family has always been a mystery I have wanted to solve, maybe together, we can get something out of all our work.
