Local family database Südlicher Hochwald

This is the area of the southern part of the "Schwarzwälder Hochwald" as a part of the Hunsrück belonging to the Saarland and to Rhineland - Palatinate.
On a road map you can see this area near the highway triangle of Nonnweiler ( A1 - A62)

Before 1792 these villages belonged whether to the Reichsherrschaft Dagstuhl , because of this there are very important noble names inside like VON HECHINGEN HOHENZOLLERN, whether to the Kurfürstentum Trier. Whether to the abbey St. Matthew in Trier, whether to the dukedom of Lothringen and so after Stanislas to the kingdom of France. After the congress of Vienna in 1816 most of this area became Prussian, the villages in the eastern part of it belonged to the dukedom of Oldenburg.
Before the French revolution marriages had only been possible between the inhabitants of the same government, but after it the people mixed themselves all over the country.

After the revolution the whole country belonged temporarily to the French DEPARTMENT DE LA Sarre up to 1816, later to Prussia and Oldenburg. Today this is a part of the Saarland and of Rhineland - Palatinate.

The families are tied together that you can find out by a click the other families related with. So the relations to the inhabitants of other villages are also shown immediately . Such connections lead therefore often to other regions far away, but you cannot research these other areas completely .
The sources of this information are very widespread we were unable to nominate them all here. If needed they can be demanded by the local offices.
A lot of emigrates from these villages could been added with their descendants in this database, especially in the USA, but only in the frame of the German law of data - protection .This work will be continued intending to add a larger part of the country.

All information had been compiled by Josef Besch (+ 2010) and Robert Schmitt (+ 2012) out of the sources nominated above. The sources are only available in German language.
Though of a most exactly work we cannot guarantee the correctness of all details. We were thankful for to have information about mistakes and for additions we could publish in the next update.

We are thankful for the many e-mails we received and for the very high acceptance of this web-site , especially for the many positive appreciations about it.
