When working with Amish ancestry you will often find multiple descents from immigrant ancestors. I saw a multiple descent chart posted to one of the Facebook groups that I follow, so thought I would try making a chart for one of my Amish immigrant ancestors.
Each row of the chart is a generation and each column is a line of descent. I only included the ancestor, but may update at some time to include dates, spouse and other information.
Since I am 1/4 Amish this chart ends with my Grandfather.
Two major Amish genealogies cover my Hochstetler families. The first covers the three sons of Jacob and the second the descendants of his daughter Barbara.
The ancestors of Katey Sagal are also in the second book. See my post: Katey Sagal – Amish Ancestry
Katey is a descendant of the Mary Stutzman shown on my chart.
I will now share a few pictures associated with some of the people on the chart.
Here is the gravestone of Magdalena Stutzman Yoder. See: Old Yoder Gravestones
I need to make similar charts for my other Amish immigrant ancestors. Yoder and Miller may be almost as complicated.
Do you have Amish ancestry?
