|About Kline Family Tree
The KLINE Family Tree.
I am Benjamin D. Kline, I have started this tree from the birth of Olivia-Grace Emiliya Kline, my daughter. I wanted to start this to try and find out the heritage of my family and to give my daughter something for when she gets older, so she'll know her family history. And its amazing; since then I've been blessed with a second daughter, Lilyana Rose Kline, and then again blessed with a third daughter, Mara Ariel Kline, and this tree continues to grow and grow and grow. With help from tons of people and pictures from people all across the world. This has been incredibly fun to work on, with family and friends and building this up for when my beautiful daughters grow older - so they'll have something to pass on to their children, and their grandchildren, and their grandchildren, and so on.
As an addendum and helpful research guide, I've also been using Find A
Grave to help locate family member's tombstones and grave-sites. My personal
Family Tree virtual cemetery can be found at: The Kline
Family Tree Cemetery.
Any information you know, please contact me and leave any information you have. It would all be greatly appreciated. You can contact me through the site here, or you can leave a comment on the guestbook!
We welcome all feedback and comments and you are invited to leave a comment on
the guestbook. I greatly encourage all visitors to the page come and sign the GUEST
BOOK; please leave your name and whatever comment or question or anything else you'd like -
and I definitely recommend that if you have your own family tree that you put the link to your tree
in the guest book as well. This is a great way for me to acknowledge who has visited my tree and to
gather more information.
The Kline, Speck, Yeagley, and Beamersderfer information comes
* Grace Kline (Speck)
* Linda Stum (Kline)
* George Kline
* Bruce Speck provided an entire and very detailed genealogy/family
tree and history of the Speck family as descended from Andrew Speck.
More information about the descendants of Johannes Isaac Kline and other Klines
and related people are provided by Deb Kontra and Rosanne Jorde. Their
website was extremely informative and many branches have yet to be added to the tree
here from theirs. Their Family Tree is hosted by My
Heritage and their family tree and heritage page may be located here: Jorde Family Tree.
An invaluable family tree is the Clemens
Family Tree which provided me with loads and loads of information on the far distant
cousins of my family; the Klines, Cassels, Hunsbergers, Benners, Kolbs, Kulps, Wellers, Moyers, etc,
A great, fellow TribalPages Family Tree site that has been a great source for
information and help along the way for me, especially with the Kings, Dukes, Earls,
Philosophers, Queens, etc, is:
Revolutionaries, Reverends, and Royals: A Family Tree Website by Valerie
A forums based around the British Royal Family and their relative branches: The Royal Forums.
The demo family tree - an example tree - made and kept updated by Tribal Pages themselves based
around the British Royal Family: The British Royal
Also I would like to thank Dan Means at: Our
Family Tree House for the invitation and availability to research through his tree (which is a
very well done, large and expansive tree).

I, Benjamin D. Kline, am *ALWAYS* looking for all kinds of information, leads,
pictures, maps, news, obituaries, military information, citations, documents, or
ANYTHING pertaining to any person found in this family tree.
IF you think a person or information on a person is in error on this site, please contact me THROUGH this website; or THROUGH this website's 'guestbook'.
IF you are a person who is ON this website (a distant cousin, distant cousin once-removed, etc, etc, etc,) PLEASE, PLEASE, don't hesitate to contact me. Its always greatly interesting to find anyone who is a relative, no matter how distant.
IF you know of any websites, books, catalogs, or databases that would be pertinent to me, to information and history on the family surnames of KLINE, KOCH, SPECK, CURTIS, CROCE; again, please contact me.
I AM hoping to keep this as the ultimate database on everything related to the family. So any websites with information, no matter how obscure or miniscule, any pictures, photos, or anything that would be relevant at all, please contact me, I want to keep this site updated; not only as a family tree, but as a general repository of information related to the family.
AND FINALLY, thank you all for taking the time to view this website, the tree, the links, and if you read this entire homepage - for reading the entirety of this homepage. It means A LOT to me; and hopefully for future generations of the family who can view this and know their past and their heritage.
