When I was about 10 years old my mother brought home a family tree that a relative (Bruno Cohn who later went by Bruce Carter) had gotten out of Germany, taken with him to South America, and later brought to Los Angeles when he immigrated to the U.S.  The family tree had been drawn in 1905 and was of the Jacobi and Witkowski families from Bromberg, Germany.  Bromberg is now called Bydgoszcz and is part of Poland.  It lies about halfway between Berlin and Warsaw (see MAP).  The tree is centered around the marriage of Jakob Jacobi and Friederike Witkowski, which took place in 1810.  The left side of the tree is Jakob’s family (JACOBI), which I am part of, while the right side is Friederike’s family (WITKOWSKI) and her “step-family” (ALEXANDER).  The top part of the tree are the descendants of Jakob and Friederike and their fifteen (!!!) children.

You can see a larger version of the original tree HERE.

Below the tree is a family summary, and links to these pages:
