This site documents the history and genealogy of my family. As such, it will be
in development for a lifetime. Currently, the emphasis has been on the Kern family.
Extensive research has been performed on the history of the family. The results
of the research are provided in the menu on the left side of this page.
The side menu contains sections of the genealogy material that have references to
various topics. As an example, under the heading of “Kern History” there are references
to the history of the Kernmühle, where the Kern name came from, the history of the
Kerns living in Roßtal, and the history of the two Kern immigration groups and their
settlement in Michigan.
Dave Kern, with the help of his Uncle Franklin Kern, has also published a substantial
amount on the Kern family under the name “Millington News”. The links to his web
pages (“Millington News Links” on the side menu) are provided to try to present a
complete picture of what has been published about the Kern Family.
If there ever are any comments or offers of additional information please feel free
to contact me by clicking the link on the side menu.
