Our Society was founded in November 2000 in Sindelfingen (Arbeitskreis donauschwabischer Familienforscher).

AKuFF is primarily a family education organization, but this does not exclude the possibility of research.

The main purpose of the society is to organize the researchers in this organization, promote the exchange of information by getting to know each other's research work, provide scientific background for the members and giving professional assistance necessary for research. In addition the Swabian history, local history, historical auxiliary sciences (heraldry, archontology, cartography, etc.) are also in range of our interest.

Usually we hold a three day meetings yearly in different parts of the country in locations where are members live. There apart from the official task we hear 1-2 professional presentation and if available we see the local sights (tombstones of the age of settling, local history collection, etc.).

The 'AKuFF News' the newspaper of the Society also available and downloadable on the homepage with news, information and professional articles of the members.

We have developed our homepage to show ourselves to the people are interested in family research and help them with our experience and expertise.

I hope You will find help and ideas in our homepage for your research.
