Some years ago I started with the genealogy of my ancestors. In the last three years I started to use the internet for my research. I started with around 20 persons in the family tree. Now there are more than 8000 persons in the family tree.
My focus is on the following families:
Weiland from Högyész (Hungary), where these ancestors originally came from Hofen (Runkel) near Limburg/Lahn.
Müller, Pfaff and Winkler from Högyész (Hungary)
Schober from Franconia, Nuremberg and Froschbach / Scheyern
Seidel from Augsburg
Wallinger from Gödre (Hungary)
For privacy reasons some datas are available for registered users only. If you are a part of the family and interested, please contact me. If you are doing research about “Högyész”, please contact me, too.
On www.honkpage.de there is my private homepage.
I am a member of the following genealogic associations:
|AKdFF – Arbeitskreis donauschwäbischer Familienforscher e.V.
|GFF – Gesellschaft für Familienforschung in Franken e.V.
|Compgen – Verein für Computergenealogie
|Bayerischer Landesverband für Familienkunde
