Welcome to the Ungerecht family tree!
The focus, at least for now, is on all ancestors and descendants on the Ungerecht family that emigrated from Germany to Wisconsin in 1864. Read more about the Ungerecht name, and my 2016 trip to the home land in Germany.
This is set up as a wiki, with links from one person to another and one family per page. In the past, family genealogists would spend months trying to pull information from each family before publishing a book. Whatever made it before the deadline was included, and follow-up information didn't get sent out. In contrast, this is a "living" document and can be updated at any time. And instead of grainy black-and-white photos, clicking on any picture here will get you to a full-size version. For privacy reasons, since this is online, only registered users can see the modern generations that include living people (roughly considered people born after 1920, if not otherwise known). Contact me for more information.
These pages can also be exported as a PDF document for printing or viewing (see link on left). Anybody with information to contribute can edit it themselves (with an account) or pass the information on to me. Pictures and stories are especially welcome!
Family that emigrated to Wisconsin, their kids and grandkids:
Johann Valentin Ungerecht (1826-1891), son of Johannes Ungerecht (1787-1864) of Helba;
married to Eva Margaretha Erbe (1825-1895), daughter of Johann Georg Erbe, children:
A larger overview of the family tree is here.
Read more about Helba and Walldorf in Thuringia, Germany. In America the Ungerechts settled in Caledonia (just south of Milwaukee, Wisconsin), then Glen Ullin North Dakota, and Northome Minnesota, with individual families in many other locations, mostly in the northern half of the U.S. See also the locations page.
This is definitely incomplete, but it is known that a Kaspar Ungerecht served (likely drafted) into the army at the time that Napoleon controlled that region of Germany, and he died in the service in 1811. He was an uncle to our emigrant Johann Valentin. The Ungerechts emigrated to the U.S. right at the end of the Civil War so they missed serving in that conflict. We know Richard Ungerecht died in Vietnam, and Jerry Ungerecht served there. Numerous others have served during peaceful times.
