How to get an user account?

Application for user account

Living persons can only be viewed by registered and registered users (visitors or editors). Only people who are themselves in the genealogy, can get a user account.

At "Apply for a user account" fill in the form with username, password and email address and enter the reference to the family in the remarks field. Choose your own username and password and remember them!

As soon as a user account is requested, an e-mail with a confirmation link will be sent to the specified address. Then follow the link to confirm the e-mail address. Then the new user is allowed by the administrator.

A user will not be able to log in unless both "Email Verified" and "Administrator Approved" options are set.


Why do we continue this project?

In memory of our late parents we continue the Genealogy our father had started.

Here you find information about our parents Helmut and Elisabeth Paul (see bookmarks below) and persons related to them by birth or marriage.

Our father passed away just before Christmas 2015. His scientific work on Stopping Power is now hosted and continued by the IAEA.

He has been interested in genealogy for years. As a boy, he started making genealogical charts of the Greek gods. Later, it occurred to him that his own relations would also be interesting, and that there are many live people among them whom he could contact and ask for information.

Originally, he used sheets of paper for his charts. Then he found a computer program much more versatile to store the growing amount of information. Now, by putting the information into the Internet, he hoped to make it available to more people.

To respect the privacy of living people, only empty boxes (or the word "private") are shown for living persons. But if you are a member of the family, feel free to request a user account for yourself - then you can see all the information.

Like our father did, we dedicate this site to the memory of our mother Elisabeth who has died in 2008


How to find my relatives?

What I can search for?

How to find people, facts and events.


How are images used?

Images are wonderful to give life to the whole Family story!

So a filename could be eg. like this:
yymmdd_givenname_lastname_01.jpg
givenname_lastname_01.jpg
lastname_lastname_01.jpg


How to use places?

Using identified places helps to find people

Our father started to use the four to five category system of places you can find in Wikipedia. Its also used in Google Maps and OpenSource Maps. Until now we use Google Maps, as we didn`t succed to correct integrate OpenSource Maps in this system.

All used places are integrated in the Google Maps System of this Genealogy. So if you want to use a location type in the name of the place and look if there is any suggestion of the system. If not please look up in Wikipedia the categories and type them eg. like this:
Place, City, County, State, Country (the countries name always should be in English)

Any new place we will integrate in the system so the exact location can be found on Google Maps.
