2010 : 'Schudt-Knauth Family Tree' and
'Schudt-Knauth Family Data'
Provided by Dr. Ernst-Rainer Schudt, Germany.
These docs are not linked for public access because they contain
confidential information for living relatives. Dr. Schudt provided a Knauth family tree and
related document with relatives dating back to
Petrus von Knauth, born 1509.
(My previous Knauth family tree only
went back as far as Abraham Knauth, b. 1739.) These documents
provided a multitude of additional German ancestors and relatives.
They have been combined into my database to create the newer updated
Knauth Family Tree that is now available on this site.
Email reference from Dr.
original family tree is handwritten und sometimes not easy to
decipher. I don’t know when and by whom it was compiled. The last
entries date from around 1880. It was in possession of my
grandfather Werner Knauth and then in the possession of my
uncle Heinz Knauth.
complete the information which is available to me I attach images of
the coats of arms from "von Triller" und "Knauth". They are part of
the family tree.
