Fenchel - Schwaben, Germany

Please be nice this is my first post... :S

I have been researching my family history for over a year - and have come to a complete STOP.

I am stuck on FENCHEL of Germany....

This is as far back as I am able to find - and I am current to the present day.

I would like to find out more about the "Fenchel" Family in Germany - and anything related to them. Where they lived, how they lived, etc.

AND the first name of this FENCHEL below. I have not been able to find any additional information on

I believe Simon Fenchel was the first to come to the US...but I have no record of that.

I was not able to find him on a ship record or a Port of Entry.


I am helping my grandfather and his birthday is this week - hoping to give him some good news!!!

Thanks, Andrea
