My Ancestors

I have three separate ancestral lines from Dettensee. I can trace all three to the 1700s. One line traces back to the Jewish community in Hürben, now Krumbach. I am currently particularly interested in the Hirsch family and establishing that I am related to that large Dettensee family.

I would like to thank Herbert Zander for providing me with a great deal of information about my ancestors in Dettensee. His help has been invaluable.

Please note that the trees only include a few generations in order to protect the privacy of the living.
