Family Finder
First Name:

The Sefrin Family of Contwig and the United States

Updated September 14, 2005

About Our Family Research

The Sefrin family settled in Contwig, in 1663, some 15 years after the Thirty Years War. The family has survived the cruel twists of history there for some 15 generations. My research began over 40 years ago as I tried to fulfill my fathers wish to know more about the history of his ancestors. There are many holes in this research, but the structure of the family is clear. I hope that my passion for this research ignites a similar passion in some future family researcher.
