Shared note

(Research):The Kunkel family, up to today, are still primarily concentrated in the area of the Spessart Mountain range, a largely wooded area in the heart of Germany. Existence of an early Glass house in the Spessart area was mentioned in a document dated 22 August 1349. The area was under the jurisdiction of the Archbishop of Mainz. The Union Letter (Bundesbrief) of 1537 lists two KUNKEL's, namely Jurge (George) and Hentze Kunkel, and in a later revision dated 24 February 1559, again two KUNKEL's - George and Friedrich Kunkel. It is evident that there are links, as the Glass making was only carried down in the same families. This earliest known generation has only one mentioning of this earliest known family that was put together from the Parish register records received from a researcher in Germany, and combined with the data on the I.G.I. Index at the LDS Library in SLC, Utah, and the earliest records on file at the LDS Library on this Germany family. Much research is still need to fill out all the missing information, however I have been told that Genealogy Records beyond this point is next to impossible to find, due to all the Wars that took place in this country. The "Thirty Years War (1618-1648) destroyed many Church records throughout Germany. So many records has been destroyed, and to find a cemetery with head stones that can be read, after 500 years has gone by, The first two generations of this book, I have recorded these Kunkel family members, because the records out of Germany said they were family, and the records out of the LDS Library said they were family, and they all lived and died in the same place, so I feel that these families should also be listed in this book of KUNKEL records, along with their descendants that are much better recorded with dates and locations.
