Classification: Query
Surnames: Kastenbauer, Keller, Keck, Kern, Kirn, Rentschler, Wahr
The following family records are part of the book „Ortssippenbuch Simmersfeld“ which will be published most probably end this year. This Ortssipenbuch covers the four villages: Simmersfeld, Fünfbronn, Ettmannsweiler, and Beuren which are all parts of the church community of Simmersfeld. These villages are located in the „Kreis“ (district) Calw in the northern part of the Black forest which belonges to Württemberg.

I am looking for the missing informations: date of death, of marriages, of living places, names of the husbands/wifes, and professions. For most of these people a big number of ancestors are known and can be studied in the Ortssippenbuch of Simmersfeld or other books of this kind.
Please note there are some explanations at the end.

Some notes you will probably find helpful: My family records start with its index number; a F number means this family lived in Fünfbronn, a S number in Simmersfeld, a E number in Ettmannsweiler, and a B number in Beuren. If known the name of the house (used today) where the family lived is added in paranthesis. If the parents are registered in the Ortssippenbuch of Simmersfeld you find only the index number.
Concerning the children: you find here are only those listed up having emigrated to „America“ which is mostly always identical with the USA. Note: the dates are written in European format beginning with the day, followed by the month and the year.
