Big Klasen Family Tree Update

I have finally gotten around to updating the Klasen Family Genealogy site with some of my recent research.

When I get a bit of spare time, I have been finding little tidbits of information that I have been collecting. Recently, I also made a discovery of another family tree that had a pretty good tie in to my family tree. Last night, I completed the updates to the Mr Papa’s World Genealogy Site.

This was a major update to the family tree. Large numbers of new individuals and surnames have been added. Here is a breakdown on some of the changes:

  • Tree went from approximately 393 individuals to approximately 688 individuals
  • Tree went from approximately 112 surnames to approximately 210 surnames
  • Tree went from approximately 9 generations to 15 generations

The majority of the finds were on the Kott side (my Mother) of the family. A large number of these were not direct descendants, but instead were detailed families of aunts/uncles/brothers/sisters of several of my Mothers ancestor generations.

The surnames with the most additions were:

  • Komray
  • Maskelis
  • Cummings
  • Miner
  • Shenk

Again, unfortunately, no Klasens were added to the family tree. That seems to be a pretty cold path at the moment. The only Klasen Family relative that I know of is my Grandfather Fred Klasen who died when I was very young. I dont believe he had any brothers or sisters. It also appears that no one living has any clues as to his family heritage either. Never fear, I will keep digging.

After the major update, here is how the surnames and number of families within are represented:

If you want to look at the families within each surname, you can click on the link. A quick glance also reveals that there are only 5 entries for the name Klasen. Maybe I have the tree named wrong 😉

With Suzanne’s Father Brett taking a genealogy class and having some information to share, I expect some new additions to her side of the family too.

In the meantime, the research continues…


  1. Anne Pechuls says

    Quite impressive!

    The last name for John and Maureen is spelled McAveeney.

    Brett’s geneology class was cancelled–hopefully, it will be scheduled next semester.


  2. Okay, thanks, will make the change… As for Brett, well, that just means he has more time to devote to it now 🙂

  3. Anne Pechuls says

    OOPS! I mispelled genealogy–sorry! Yes, we will have to get Brett working on this now!


  4. genealogy data and post updated… keep looking Anne! You have to more MacDonalds, Mitternights or other to add to Suzanne’s side…

  5. Wow, that looked like a lot of work!

  6. Actually, its pretty fun, but I am a geek… of course, software tools help… may have made a big breakthrough on the Klasen side too… need to make sure its accurate, but may have managed to finally find my grandfathers family and traced them all the way back to Germany… have my fingers crossed I can connect the last dot…
