The family trees within this website are those of my Curtius One-Name Study and consists of any Curtius - Korte - Kur(t)z(e) families and includes their direct ancestors, descendants, siblings, cousins, collateral descendants and in-law (married) relatives etc. So anyone mentioned in the genealogy has some related connection to the Curtius - Korte - Kur(t)z(e) families. It should be borne in mind that the people mentioned in the genealogy all have varying degrees of authenticity; for instance the pedigrees may have some assumptions made as to the exact lineage and include persons who may not be in fact correct; but are a best guess with the evidence available; the assumptions have to be made in order to try and construct a coherent chart. Even in the printed pedigree shown above there are errors; so you cannot believe everything because it is in print! Don't take everything you see in my website as absolute proof positive! It's only a guide. The results of research should always reference sources and original documents are the only way to construct a family tree with veracity and even then the original documents should be graded as to their surety.

Some of the family genealogical information provided in my research is extensive, whilst in some others it is negligible. If you have anything to contribute to this web-site it will be gratefully received.

Currently the Korte / Curtius / Kurtze of Bremen, Lippe, Kassel etc. database contains 846 people; the Kurtz family of Reutlingen contains 1246 people; Kurtze alias Curtze family of Waldeck contains 670 people; Korte alias Curtius of Lübeck contains 48 people and the other families are represented by smaller numbers in the database. My own 'Van Zomeren Warringa' family principally from the provinces of Groningen and Drenthe in the Northeastern Netherlands and Germany contains nearly 25,000 people. The genealogies are fully interactive with hyperlinks, images, sources, maps, etc. Adding information will be an ongoing process, with new data being uploaded to this website from time to time.
