Remarks for genealogists

deutscher Text

My name is Jens-Peter Stern, I grew up in a small village called Bornich in the vicinity of the famous Lorelei in today’s Rhein-Lahn-Kreis, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

My parents started in the 1980s, based on heritage finds and narratives, to create a first pedigree of our family.

Since the early 1990s, I’ve also been more involved in exploring our ancestors.

Since 2013 I am a member of …

compgen

Beside my own line, I explore all ancestors from the point of view of my children. My research focuses on the German regions of Mittelrhein/Taunus, Baden-Durlach, Tauberfranken and Spessart.

In the future I would like to extend my research to the area of Freiwaldau in the Czech Sudetenland.


Our family chronicle contains the key data of the approx. 475-year history of Stammline Stern in chronological order.

The category family history summarizes individual research aspects and anecdotes about the Stern family in a loose sequence.

Further information can be found e.g. to our family crest and surname.

The link list is intended as a recommendation for genealogy tools.


The latest data from my research results can be found in extracts in the ancestor database on my own server. In addition, the data – but sometimes not very up to date  – are mirrored at GEDBAS and GeneaNet.

The spread of common family names on the timeline looks like this:

Namensgeschichte
Please note that the Internet Databases just contain the direkt ancestors and their siblings for the youngest offspring of our ancestral line. If you do not find one of the names or locations in the databases, there is probably no direct relation to an immediate ancestor. For reasons of data protection, information on living persons as well as detailed information and sources are not published. On request, I can help seriously interested family researchers with individual information and sources from my research results.

If you use my data in your own research, it is recommended to use the Internet databases or mirrors in GEDBAS or GeneaNet as sources.

Creative Commons Lizenzvertrag
When taking over and possibly publishing information from my research results, please note that these are licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0, which basically means that they may be shared and further processed for any non-commercial purposes if I am named as the originator and the retransmissionis done under the same license as the original. The exact terms are in the license agreement, which is linked to the logo above.

If applicable, other license rights remain unaffected. This applies in particular to photos from church books and the use of our family coat of arms (please refer to the imprint)!
