This WORLDSITE will introduce those people of the World descended from Zacharias Schömbs -- the Schambs, Schembs, Schemes, Schoembs, Schombs, Schaembs and Schömbs, as well as the descendants of Schömbs daughters whose surnames changed through marriage.

The WORLDSITE includes books and much other information about Zacharias Schömbs and his descendants. "The Family of Zacharias Schömbs" by Reinhold Schembs (Mainz/Laubenheim, Germany) deals with the history of the family back to 1645 (the Thirty Years War) and continuing into the 21st Century in Germany. It is available in both German and English. "The Auswanderer Schömbs" by Jim Schembs (Phoenix, Arizona USA) is the story in English of those who decided to leave Germany, and their lives and descendants thereafter.

What's Really New?
It's over! And it was a big success!! Cousins from around the World came together. Many had come to prior Familientrefffen. Others were with us for the first time. And all said they wanted to come back for the next Treffen.

It was our fifth Familientreffen, the first having been in 1999. But still no cousins from Antarctica or Africa! All the other continents were represented!

Details are on the WORLDSITE. And periodically check the Worldsite to see when the next Familientreffen is planned. Or for other family news.

The Fifth Schömbs Familientreffen -- 2023

About 170 relatives met in Herrnsheim, Germany, for the Familientreffen. Relatives came from Israel, Australia, the United States, France, Belgium, and Germany. The big party was on Saturday, 1 July 2023. But the festivities began on Thursday evening, 29 June, with a welcoming dinner. Friday we went by charter bus to visit the hometowns from which many of our emigrant forefathers and foremothers had come. In each case we were greeted by local officials and led on a walking tour of their towns. Friday dinner was in Worms. And Saturday morning cousin Karin Kissel led us on a walking tour of downtown Worms. Saturday afternoon was our big Fest, hosted by Arno and Mieke Schembs. Sunday following a tour down the Rhein River we had our farewell dinner in Worms.

Many more (and larger) pictures are available on the WORLDSITE.
