Old Gentz Family Tree in Germany
Posted by: Stefan Gentz (ID *****5972) Date: February 10, 2006 at 09:02:45

Hello,

my name is Stefan, born 1975 near Berlin in Germany. My Great Grandfather Erich Gentz did a lot of research about the Gentz family in the last century and wrote down nine folders in old german handwriting (difficult to read). The folders also include a lot of family trees, some of them really big.
My personal tree goes back to someone called Hermann Gentz who died in 1607 and was born fifteen hundred something. In several places it is also mentioned that Gentz people moved over "the pont" to America.

I will try to read and digitize the handwritten folders before they fall into peaces some day. Meanwhile I will appreciate it to get any information and trees from the american Gentz family tree.

If you have any information, family trees etc. and especially perhaps old letters I would highligh appreciate to hear from you.

Best regards,
Stefan Gentz, Germany
