This website is a continuation of a project several years in development. My interest in ancestry was sparked at an early age from listening to fragmented yet intriguing old family tales. When curiosity compelled me to explore beyond the oral history, I found it tragic how little physical evidence of our predecessors’ existence there seemed to be—at least at first. Thus, salvaging our lineal history quickly expanded into a passionate pursuit.

The success of this restoration gained momentum through several contacts who have, over the years, shared information, stories, and copies of old photographs—which I have a deep reverence for. Their generosity has made it possible to fill in some gaps, reconstruct sections of genealogy, and preserve our lineal history.


If some of the information I have presented here was useful to you please site me as a source: “David von Ehrlicher”. Please do not just take my research for granted—question it, and improve upon it. I do not mind being proven wrong; only please let me know after you have done so, so that I may make the proper adjustments. As always, corrections are welcome.

I would like to extend a special thanks to the following people who were particularly helpful in contributing to my research at various points during my genealogical quests:

Ernst Stross, Bürgermeister von Hammelburg
