|My genealogical research is focused on the following families:|
#1 Kindl (Kindel), (von) Kaenel/Kennel
#2 Pravetz/Prawetz (Pravics)
#3 Beck, Schweighardt
#4 Bauer, Krenner, Dietrich, Schmidt
The roots of our Kindl family line can be traced back to the Palatine region in Germany, with Marcus/Marci Kindel and his wife Elisabeth NN from Hettenleidelheim.
The family had 7 children and the last son Lambert Kindel/Kennel married a Veronica Gross.
They had 9 children and their 4th son Johann Jakob is the head of the Kindl family line from Vérteskozma.
Johann Jakob Kennel married Elisabeth Margaretha Hochbein 1737 in Kirchenarnbach-Obernheim, Sickinger Hoehe,
Palatine, Germany and emmigrated to Hungary between 1745-8, where he was registered as Kindel/Kindl.
Their son Kaspar Kindl is the head of the Kathreinfeld branch of the family and his son Johann, the head of the branch
from the Banater Heide.
There is another Kindl/Khendel family line from Kisker and Bulkes, with origins from one of the Kennel family branches
from the Palatine, but their relation is still to be determined.
Still unresolved issues are
1.1) Heinrich Kennel/Kindel and Anna Maria Rauch (oo1739), from Zeselberg, Sickinger Höhe, Palatine, Germany.
Brother of Johann Jakob, regisered in Wien on 25.5.1768 as Kindel on his way to Hungary. 1771 in Kozma. Unknown residence in Hungary, but Marienfeld is very likely.
1.2) Niclas (Nikolaus) Kindel from Brettnach, Lorraine. Registered in Wien on 2. Mai 1766 on his way to Großkomlosch,
Hungary. No further details are available yet.
Josef Pravetz (*1804) and Magdalena Groszeibl from Gánt, Hungary are the oldest known ancestors.
The origin of the family isn't known yet, but the name would indicate a slavian origin.
Information for the other families is limited to the data from the published family register of Verteskozma.
I like to share information about these and related families, in order to document the family history and any input is appreciated.
Please feel free to contact me under my email address, if you like to share family information and history.
I do have a facebook profile with a Kindl, Kennel and Pravetz family group.
