Background

Saul Family

Before we get into the family tree of the Saul family, we need to understand the German naming practices.  When German boys and girls were baptized, they were generally given middle names, not always, but most of the time.  When given their middle name, that is the name they were known as for the rest of their lives.  Only for legal documents (and maybe not even then) would they use their first name but always with the middle name.  In some cases, the males could all be given the same first name, but since their middle names would be different and used as their name. there was not a problem.  This is the case we have with the George Saul family.  Johannes (Johann, Johan) was used for the boys and Anna was used for the girls.  So, just remember if you see a first and middle name, that person was known by his middle name.

  1. Very nicely composed, arranged, and presented lineage of our family. Compliments! I have worked on our tree for over 40 years, but your presentation is so much more beautifully done as narrative. Other articles within your blog are equally exciting to see and interesting to read. My tree is THAT SAUL FOLKS! (2016) on Ancestry.com My lineage is via the brother of your Edward- William Henry Saul whom we refer to in that Hoosier accent as "Poy".
