Why do we publish family trees in the chinnow network? The Chinnow family
is far more branched than you might assume. Although this name does not appear very
often in comparison to other names it is not yet possible to present the Chinnow family
as a whole, in one family tree. Up to now there are two of them that have been assembled
with great effort, but do not show any links where they could be joined.
For years Heinz Chinnow from Twickingham, Michigan (USA), has been busy with genealogy,
collecting information from various sources like international archives, the internet,
and from family members still living in good old Europe, the result of which is the
provisional family tree presented on this site.
The other family tree has been assembled by Manfred Chinnow from Mettmann, Germany,
who, like Heinz, has been collecting information on his ancestry line for years. In
addition to that we hope to be able to present an essay on the history of the Chinnow
