General Information

Clyde Eisenbeis began researching the Eisenbeiß name in 1980 by writing letters to various Eisenbeiß families throughout North Dakota and South Dakota. This quickly expanded to California and Canada.

After the first International Eisenbeiß Family Reunion in 1982, this expanded to more states. After the second International Eisenbeiß Family Reunion in 1984 (which included Eisenbeiß Families from Germany), this expanded to other countries.

Over the next few decades, the research expanded in an attempt to record all known Eisenbeiß families. Hundreds of folks have contributed thousands of names / family relationships ... and includes Eisenbeiß family genealogies from around the world (listing of contributors).

Special acknowledgement is given to Albert Eisenbeiß of Germany, Henri Eisenbeis of France, and Dennis Eisenbeis of California for their long term commitment to this extensive effort.
