The Archive


The TGD Archive in Stuttgart provides a large data base for family research about persons of the past, with details, above all, of those whose forebears once emigrated from their German homeland to America, Russia, Palestine and Africa and found new homes abroad. Special emphasis is placed on their places of origin, on the timing of their emigration, and on their professions and positions within the Society. Their biographical data and family relationships have priority.

A genealogical data base like this is always open-ended; just as we have received the results of their own family research from many members and friends, so we also depend on the readers of these pages for further additions, corrections and extensions to our collection. Our Archive meticulously preserves family documents, biographies, excerpts from church registers, ancestral charts and descriptions of domiciles etc. and put them at the disposal of interested researchers.

Below please find the names of families about which considerable data already exist. We could call them “core family names”. The total number of the names in the collection amounts, of course, to a multiple of this core. If a name is missing in the list below, a direct enquiry to the Archive is recommended.

We have added to our collection not only families whose relatives live in Germany today, but also those who are domiciled in Australia or in other parts of the world. There are, however, a number of families of which no living relatives or descendants are known to us.
