Birth Maps :: Geburtenkarten :: Naissances Cartes

These images are generated using a program I wrote which reads the locations from a database and plots them on a pre-generated map background. The European births are all pre-1900, and the United States births are all persons with the surname Kastler having an actual birth city, as opposed to only a state or county, identified in my database. As time permits, I will be adding locations of related persons not carrying the Kastler surname. In Europe, you can really see the concentration of the larger Kastler family groups such as the Schwäbische Alb (Southern Germany) , Lasberg (Austria), Wahlern (Switzerland) , Westhoffen (Alsace France/Germany) , and Saarland (near Trier, Germany) Kastlers.
