Bogenschneider Family

Diese Seite ist auch auf Deutsch verfügbar: Hauptseite.

The purpose of this site is for Bogenschneider family members and descendants to have an opportunity to share information on the family heritage and history and to establish contacts and communication with other family members on a worldwide basis. A family member is anyone with the Bogenschneider surname or is a descendant or relative of anyone with the Bogenschneider surname.

The Bogenschneider family is originally from Pomerania, which was a province in Prussia. After World War II, much of Pomerania was transferred to Poland, with most of the Pomeranian area west of the Oder River remaining in Germany. Additional information about Pomerania can be found at my Genealoger site. Family members today reside in the United States and Germany. Because of this, sections of this web site will be presented in both English and German, and communication will be welcomed in either language.

Whenever possible, credit will be given to the source or person that has supplied information. Also, an attempt will be made to ensure the privacy of living individuals. If there are any copyright or privacy concerns, please contact the webmaster to have the information changed or removed from the site.
