You have arrived at my version of the Gerwing
family tree. The information here relates
mostly to Gerwings' in Canada, Germany, USA and Australia.
This tree is devoted to the known ansestors and descendants of
Heinrich Gerwing (1847-1905). Early variations of the name
include Gerwinck, Gerwerdinck, Gerwertinck, Gerwer, etc. The earliest generations
listed lived in the Alstaette area of Germany. Church
records there date back to the 1700's. Heinrich Gerwing
emmigrated from Alstaette to the USA in 1871 settling in
Minnesota. Other Gerwings (relationship to Heinrich unknown)
emmigrated to the Kentucky area of the USA.
purpose in posting on the internet is to gather additional information
about Gerwings around the world so that future generations
may better understand their roots.
