Commencing in 1980 the Exile Society began collecting, at the Schwenkfelder Library, genealogical data to supplement in cataloged clerical form the Genealogical Record of the Schwenkfelder Families published in 1923, edited by Dr. Samuel K. Brecht. A file of family supplement forms (numerically indexed) and of individual name cards (alphabetically indexed) was established. Descendants (not just members, but anyone who is a lineal descendant) are urged to provide their family information.
To begin registration, please download the Genealogical Record Supplement Sheet which contains space for four generations. We apologize that until further notice this form cannot be input on-line. You will need to print it out on legal-sized paper (2 sides) and fill it out by hand. When completed, mail to: Schwenkfelder Exile Society, 105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg, PA 18073.
