This site is a collation of descendants of my great5th-grandfather, Christian Friedrich Fahrholz, at one time of Schönhausen, Germany.

Christian's daughter, Elisabeth Marie, was born in Schönhausen. We have no record so far of Christian's birthplace.

In the 19th century, the town lay on the western edge of the Kingdom of Prussia as shown above in the map fragment from the Allgemeiner Historischer Handatlas of Professor G. Droysens. Today, the town of Schönhausen lies in the district of Stendal in Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. It is the seat of the Elbe-Havel-Land Verbandsgemeinde, which is a collective municipality much like an American township.

The information comes from various Fahrholz descendants, both in my line and others.
