Speidel Family Genealogy

About this Site


This site was started because of the many people who have helped me in my family research. Not all of the information shared with me has been about my family but it is about someone's family and should be shared with them. Compared to my other family branches, information on the Speidel family is few and far between. It is my hope that this site will provide a way to share this information.

Putting the information together on the Web has allowed me to organize the information in an easily accessible way and to share it with other researchers from all around the world who in turn often share even more information with me. So, if you are researching your Speidel/Spidel/Spidle roots, this site is for you. If you have Speidel information to share, I am always looking for more.


The following is a very basic technical overview of this site aimed at users who are not familiar with Web sites or 'surfing the Net'.
  • Links - Underlined text denotes a hyperlink (or link) to another page. Clicking the link will cause the linked page to display.

    • Green Links - These are links to pages that you have not accessed (or have not accessed lately).

    • Purple Links - These are links to pages that you have accessed.

    • Gold Background - This is a link that is being hovered over with the cursor. Clicking the mouse will active the link and the linked page will be displayed.

  • Navigation Bar - or Nav Bar, this is the bar directly under the 'Speidel Family Genealogy' banner. It begins with 'Home' and ends with 'Updates'. The Nav Bar contains links to the major pages within the site. These links do not change color like the links within the text but they are highlighted with a gold background if the cursor is moved over them. When you are on a page within the site, that page's link is highlighted in white to help show where you are in the site. If the page you are on has sub-pages then a secondary Nav Bar will appear showing links to the secondary pages.

  • E-Mail - You can send me an e-mail by clicking my name at the bottom of any page if your computer has a default e-mail program installed. If you don't have a default e-mail program installed then click the 'Contact Info' link at the top of any page. The 'Contact Info' page will be displayed showing my e-mail address.

  • More Help - If you need more help, please feel free to send me an e-mail. I'll be glad to help if I can.
