How to ...  

With the help of the Internet, the family researcher can contact other persons of his family, and thus open up branches of his family that he has not seen before.

Some search engines, like Google, for example, allow a full-text search, that is, that I can enter names and retrieve pages, that contain this name.

Conversely, I can create pages with lists of names to lead so-seekers from outside to my side, and in this way unknown offspring of a family branch, and with them to share data and photos.

I offer to everyone, who is looking after relatives with the name Schaper, his list to be published here.

Forthe least effort and maximum effect, I suggest, to create lists according to the following schedule:



The regulatory scheme is simple:

  • The first number refers to the generation
  • The second number in the order of the generation (numbered)
  • The number in parentheses represents the relationship to her parents.


Succession in the


3.3. (2.1) thus means that Carl Friedrich in the 3rd Generationafter "Ancestor" lived in this generation of the 3 in Folge war und seine Eltern (2. Generation, Nummer 1) Johann Christian und Catherine Dorothee waren. In succession, and his parents (2nd generation, No. 1) Johann Christian and Catherine Dorothee.
