The data provided here reflects the genealogical research done by Egmar Ruppert over a period of years. The detailed source data and interconnections found and placed into TREES, REPORTS and books on these families are the property of Egmar Ruppert.
His data base currently includes over 20,000 names from over 2,900 families, all in the Lower Saxony, Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse and Hamburg region. Expansion of the original family groups occurred entirely via searching for their ancestors, descendants, spouses and parents of all of these. Thus, almost all of his names are related by blood or marriage in a manner of speaking. Almost all are descended from Jewish families.
There are two lists:
- The ALPHABETICAL LIST with 2,921 Family Names covering a total of 21,967 persons, with frequency of mention of M/F and Total. (If a name is mentioned less than 10-15 times, it is difficult to determine a family structure.)
- The "Families Documented, Summary", "Family Name - Place of Residence - Known Place of Origin - Period - Pages of Data", in alphabetical order. 1,200 entries.
