About these Pages
Together with my husband Gerhard Bauch I do family history research for private purposes.

On these pages you find relatives of Ulrike Engel. For data protection reasons, we do not publish vital data of potentially living persons.

The only purpose of this web site is to find more relatives.

For your orientation, there is a region page.

One important research aspect is to find emigrants, for details, see the Emigration page.

There is also a catalog section with detailed vital data for each person.

Regarding my person: I am born on Feb, 3rd 1957 in Kirchheim / Heidelberg, for employment reasons, I moved the Donnersbergkreis, Northern Palatinate.

My husband used to work as a Software Developer. He was employed in the IT business and in government authorities for more than 42 years.
Persons, who are related to Ulrike Spiess have been marked in order to simplify navigation and research.

In some cases there is more than one date for birth, death or marriage for the same person or couple.

This is caused by multiple but contradictory sources for a particular person.

Please consider this web site as a snap shot of our family history research project.
We're still completing data, but sometimes it takes some time, until all results are online.

Starting from my pedigree we tried to find as many descendants of my earliest known ancestors as possible.

We found plenty of them.

This derives from the fact, that the Heidelberg area has excellent family history sources, in particular, there are several heritage books covering Kirchheim and its surroundings.

The majority of our research results come from these heritage books (Ortsfamilienbuch).

May we kindly ask you, to also share your genealogical data with us, as long as these data refer to our relatives or descendants of these relatives.

Vital data, you share with us will be treated according to the rules lined out under "General Privacy Statement".

Many people of my distant relatives emigrated, most of them to Northern America.

We are quite interested in learning more about these individuals.

Did they reach a European harbour at all ?

What ship did they check in ?

Did they survive the journey ?

Where did they go after arriving (e.G. Ellis Island) ?

Did they establish a family and did they produce more offspring ?

Do you belong to the descendancy of one of the persons mentioned on the emigration page ?

Would you like to share your family history knowledge with us ?
