THE KLUEPFEL/KLUPFELHOME PAGEUpdated November 21, 2001
|I have found distant relatives by searching for the surname Kluepfel and Klupfel in the PhoneDisk CD and in the Internet *whitepages* or *whowhere*, and on the Internet by searching in www.four11.com, a tool that lists e-mail addresses. I have also found many with the same surname, but we cannot establish a link between their ancestors and mine. There must be common ancestors but they are not shown in the information we have.We have determined that our family originated in southern Germany, near Wurtzburg.There are several Klupfels living there, and I have been corresponding with them.|
The language problem has been eased by my using a software program from Globalink called Power Translator.It does a pretty good job of translating my typed English into passable German, and a little less satisfactory job from German to English.At least I can communicate without the need of an interpreter.
A distant cousin in Steinfeld, Germany recently sent me a copy of his tree which links several branches of the family with ancestors going back to 1730. Hope that one of you might have some *missing link* info.
I have added the family Outline Descendant Tree.The link to this report is right below.I'm using FTM version 8 now.
