Plaut Family: Tracing the Legacy
by Elizabeth Plaut,
edited by Jonathan V. Plaut
Elizabeth S. Plaut began tracing her husband’s family
roots forty years ago, she had no idea how this undertaking would
life and turn her into a serious genealogist. A trained researcher, she
corresponded with hundreds of people around the world to glean
about the various branches of the family; scoured cemetery files,
other available sources; and maintained copious files brimming over
notes and charts. Beginning with her quest to find the roots of her
branch of the family from Willingshausen, Germany—many
years before genealogy became
popular—Elizabeth Plaut discovered families in dozens of
small villages in Germany. She
tracked the relationships between more than 11,000 people and separated
branches according to the many cities where the families originated.
in its scope and in Elizabeth Plaut’s meticulous commitment
to detail, The Plaut
Family: Tracing the Legacy will be of
immense value to all those interested in knowing more
about their roots.
