Bios & Genealogies

The following table includes every Riedesel/Rietesel emigrant to America about whom I have any information. Clicking on their link will take you to page with a biography, links to ancestry and descendant charts, and photographs. The extent of what I know varies widely. Other factual tidbits (some of them even correct) may show up on Ancestry. I don’t try to “compete” with Ancestry. My goal is to provide well-edited stories that tie together what all is known. If you have other information, please
