The "Spindle" newsletter is a quarterly publication
designed to connect threads of our Germanic Kunkels, Kunkles, Kunckels;
Conkles, Concles, Konkels; Gunkels, Gunckels, Gungels; Kunkelmann; Kunkler
& other similar names. Like the paper-based newsletter, this web page
is designed to help you find your links to our various family lines.
The Kunkel-Kunkle-Conkle-Gunkel "Spindle" Newsletter
began publication in 1995 as a clearinghouse for anyone researching the
surnames or variations, regardless of lineage, locality, or time period.
Now in its fourth year, it is published quarterly, each January (Winter),
April (Spring), July (Summer), and October (Fall).
Each issue of the Spindle is
packed with news and research on ancestors, including biographies, family
histories, Bible records, family group sheets, military records, extracts
from source materials and reference books, both new and old, immigration
records, photographs, obituaries and more. Lately, issues have been
about 38 pages each or more.
Queries are accepted free from all those researching the names, and
should be received by the first of the month preceding publication. Subscribers
are also encouraged to submit their family group sheets, as well as early
photographs and written histories from their own related line. We will
need a snail mail (or regular post office mailing address) for you along
with the query. Unless you specifically request it be placed on the
web site too, it will be taken off at that time and keyed into your email
address, if you have one.
