My own genealocical line is only one of four known principal Wanderer lines. In our family research we have named these four lines after the places, where the first known Wanderer ao each appeared:

I. The Crottendorf Line starting about 1440 -1450

II. The Neuburg Line starting in 1675

III. The Sulzbach - Weihern Line starting in 1650

IV. The Funkstatt Line starting in 1602

Besides these four principal lines, there are several smaller stems

This web-compilation is based on church records, literature sources, old journals or books, especially the book / work of Alwin Eugene John Wanderer from 1951 and information supplied by living persons, so in this case thanks to Lillian C. Dettmar from Bartlett, IL (USA) for first updates - information in harvest 2006 together with a few scans of Fichtel mountain glasses
