The presentation below summarizes information collected and combined by Friedrich F. Hüttenberger (German information) and William Gilcher (German and U.S. information), a descendant of Michael Gilcher (email him at: william.gil[email protected], and is offered here with their permission. As with all genealogy, it is never complete, and we welcome corrections and new information. The numbering system used here by Herr Hüttenberger begins with the first child [1.] of the original ancestor (Hans Nickel Guelcher) and shows each descending generation added to the right of the decimal, each number segment between decimals denoting the birth order of that person in his family of origin (for example, 1.4.6 would refer to the individual who is the sixth child of a parent who was the fourth child of Hans Nickel Guelcher's oldest child).

To see if there is additional information available online for any of these people, try entering the name in the search engine for this website, visit the Onondaga County Genweb Message Board to see if an obituary or other public document has been submitted, and don't forget to try a search on Google and/or the German version of Alta Vista.
