Welcome to the Felsenstein Family Website and Database

Welcome Login

You have entered the new database and website of the Felsenstein family. This database was created to coincide with the first international Felsenstein Family Reunion, held in Jerusalem, Israel, in October 2000, attended by 650 family members.

We have now changed to an entirely new format, which , we believe, is a great improvement on our prior system.

The new database, called PhpGedView, is on an internet site, and will enable every Felsenstein family member to see all the relevant data of the entire family.

More important, it will enable every family member to update their own family data directly on the Internet. At the same time we have provided controls to make certain that the database will not be corrupted by unintentional errors or by willful mischief.

Another wonderful aspect of the new system is that by a single click you can change the language of the entire website from English to Hebrew, or French, or Spanish. This will be of great interest especially to the younger Israeli family members, and to those not acquainted or comfortable with English.

As you become acquainted with this new PhpGedView system, you will be fascinated with the many tables, lists, histories, and other data of great interest which you will find.

There is a Help Menu for every page and there is ‏(or will be)‏ a complete User's manual available, which you can download, to assist you in becoming an expert in the PhpGedView Felsenstein database.

Every family member will receive a User's name and password, which must be used to update or change any data on the website. To do so you must LOGIN in the box provided on the side of this page. It is most important that you change the Password given to you to one that only you know, so that you can safeguard the data of the entire site and of your family. We caution every Felsenstein family member not to divulge their user's name and password to others.

Individuals who do not have a user's name and password will be able to access the database, where they can see all the information about Felsenstein family members who are no longer alive. However, they will not be able to see detailed information on living members of the family, nor will they be able to make any changes to the database.

The new PhpGedView database will also enable us to address communications to all family members who have email addresses, and to address those who have no computers.

Family members without internet access who wish to update data on the Felsenstein website will have to do so via a relative with such access. It will no longer be possible to update data in any other way.


The Genealogical Conventions in the Felsenstein Family Chronicle

The genealogical conventions used in the Felsenstein Family Chronicle are as follows:

Numbering System - Reference Numbers

  1. The numbering system is based on the "clock picture". The children of Noah Abraham and Hanna Felsenstein have each been assigned a number according to their position on the clock. This number is the first digit of the reference number. Their children are represented by the second digit, their grandchildren - the third digit, their great-grandchildren - the fourth digit, and so on. For example: Gabriel Goldschmidt's reference number is 5.1.3; he is the third offspring of Ketty Felsenstein Goldschmidt who was 5.1; Ketty was the oldest child of Isidor Felsenstein who was Number 5, as he is positioned at "5 o'clock" on the clock picture.
  2. Each spouse of a family member has a suffix "S" after the reference number.
  3. The family tree includes parent of spouses as well. Thus, the father-in-law of a family member has that family member's reference number along with the suffix "FIL". The mother-in-law of the family member has that family member's reference number along with the suffix "MIL".
  4. A divorced spouse has the suffix "SD".

"Head of Family" is defined as follows:
  1. In a household consisting of a husband and wife ‏(with or without children)‏, the family member is the Head of Family ‏(reference number without a suffix)‏.
  2. Where a spouse is deceased, the widow or widower, whether family member or spouse of family member, is the Head of Family.
  3. Any unmarried offspring living at an address other than that of the parents, is a Head of Family
