Clyde Eisenbeis began researching the Eisenbeiß name in 1980 by writing letters to various Eisenbeiß families throughout North Dakota and South Dakota. Over the next couple of decades the research expanded in an attempt to record every Eisenbeiß in the world. During that time, many people participated in the research and made contributions to the genealogy lineage (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.
An Eisenbeiß Family History and Genealogy book is published with latest
updates to coincide with the reunions. The book (approximately 400 pages) contains extensive
information about Eisenbeiß families, letters, histories, maps, coat-of-arms, and genealogy
dating back to the 1500’s.
This is an on-going work that started in 1980. Hundreds of folks have contributed thousands
of names / family relationships and includes Eisenbeiß family genealogies from around the world.
