Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Richard Schamp.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Verification of Donigerus' family tree outside of Charles J Schimpf's source.
  • Verification of other Schimpf family trees from Charles J Schimpf's source.
  • Discovery of other Schimpf family trees.

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

I found some more documents which will help with the Schimpf ancestry. The oldest, Donigerus Schimpf has a family tree which is documented in https://archive.org/details/schimpffamilysch00shim/page/n129/mode/2up/search/donigerus.
