The branches of the Hiegentlich Family Tree derive from Israel Emanuel (Eliezer Menachem) (c.1700-1766) and his wife, Annigje Rubens(c.1710->1772). They lived in Hardenberg and Heemse, Overjissel, Netherlands.
The descendants of their six children include the ANSPACHER, BROMET, de BRUIN, de VRIES, ENGERS, HART, HIEGENTLICH/HIEGENLICH, OUDGENOEG, SCHAAP, TURKSMA, and van COEVORDON families.
Data on the first and second generations of this family was compiled from research done by Rabbi Jeffrey Marx and Dr. Lars Roobol that appeared in their article, "De eerste Joden in Heemse en Hardenberg" (The First Jews of Heemse and Hardenberg), Gens Nostra, Vol. 67, Number 10, October, 2012. Data for the third and succeeding generations was taken from family charts found on MyHeritage.com, Genii.com, and Ancestry.com.

PLEASE NOTE: this database does not distinguish between circa dates and precise dates. Years which appear on this database that are not accompanied by a month and day, cannot be assumed to be the precise dates. They may only be the approximate ones. Though the data used for the first and second generations of the family comes from primary documents and has been carefully researched, data for generations three and following has been taken from sites that, for the most part, did not provide documentation for their data. Accordingly, the information in this database for the later generations should be used with some caution.
