Family trees are considered to be historical documents. They often are, but this one is also something more.
When I started to compile this family tree six years ago, the main sources were the parish registers of Estonia and older relatives with well-preserved memories.
Now, with nearly one hundred and fifty active users, the family tree grows in large part thanks to you. In fact, during the last five years you have reported the birth of 40 new family members and made this a living and growing family tree. I am so happy to hear from you!
Not as pleasing, instead quite sad, are the letters and e-mails I received about death. They were 28 in number during the past five years.
The positive is that the family tree after all grows.
From today there is a new and updated version of the family tree of Kaaman and Pruun on the Internet, (i.e. a family tree with all who have their roots in the small Estonian village of Käsmu between the 17th and 19th century).
And as with previous updates, new information about individuals have been added and detected errors are fixed.
In case you discover new errors or miss people who should be in the family tree, then please, please let me know!
