This may surprise you Uebelhack researchers - but have you
tried to search the Rootsweb Family Trees? Just click on
the top line at the Rootsweb Home Page where you find the
mail lists and the message boards, and click on Family Trees,
and enter the name UEBELHACK - an avalanche of information comes down the hill. For instance, there is one
Family Tree "Willstaedt Simpson Families", it contains the
name UEBELHACK at least 25 times, beginning appr. in
1588 in Uetzdorf Bavaria, goes to about 1725, than there
seems to be a gap of a hundred years or so, and starts again
around 1823 to the present time. A lot of living persons with
last name Uebelhack, no shortage there. --
Not to forget, this tree has just been updated recently on

But there are many more entries by various Uebelhack
researchers, wouldn't it be nice if they would help others in
their search, this name is really well represented, although
none of them I looked at closer, did mention the Hessian
soldier Konrad Uebelhack of the Ansbach-Bayreuth troops.
With a name like this, there got to be some connection
somewhere along the line.
I wish those Uebelhack's would participate for the sake of
finding the 'true' roots of their tribe.
I myself have no personal connection, they are NOT in my
