My Ancestors

My ancestors lived in the town of Rexingen from at least the mid-eighteenth century until the Holocaust. Much of the information I have learned about these ancestors has come from the book In Stein Gehauen (discussed below). I am a descendant of five different Rexingen familes. Please note that the trees only include only a few generations in order to protect the privacy of the living.
