Christian Lauffer Genealogy Study

Overview

 

    Christian Lauffer, 1723 – 1796, immigrated to America from Germany around 1730.  Christian is known to many of us in the Lauffer line as Christian “The Pioneer”.  This Lauffer Family database goes back to Ludwig Fischer, the Great Grandfather of Christian through his Grandmother on Christian’s father’s side, and to Joseph Pfeifer, through his Grandmother on Christian’s mother’s side.

Christian Lauffer is the 5th Great Grandfather of this Genealogy’s author, James R. Lauffer Sr.

 

    This genealogy study began with the information contained in the LAUFFER HISTORY book published in 1906 and co-authored by my Great Grandfather, Henry Z. Lauffer.

 

    As shown in the Surnames List, it has been found that there are several related Lauffer family lines with different spellings of the Lauffer family name.  This is in addition to the many thousand family surnames from the daughter lines.

 

    Even though the information in this site has been researched and cross checked, the database remains in development and has unresolved links and probable errors in some of the information.  Research inputs from other family lines are identifying information conflicts. These conflicts will be worked and the best available information will be incorporated into the data. As you view this site and see known errors or missing information, please contact me and provide your corrections.  I would appreciate any inputs along with your source information.  Of most importance, if your family line is not included in this information, please send me your information.  The plans are to republish the Lauffer History towards the end of 2009, over 100 years after the first Lauffer History publication.  Make yourself and your family line part of this history!  Contact me for details on how to provide your information.

    

Hope the information in this site is of interest to you.  If your line is not listed in the Surname section, please contribute to the Family History.
