In an article of 1988, German newspaper DIE ZEIT reported about Lena Louise Axthelm, who was a cook of German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Here you can read everything about her attempt to make the delicacy Thuringian dumplings palatable for the writer Goethe.
On the website you can now find a newspaper article from the year Jahr 1939 concerning the first big clan meeting and the old Axthelm memorial stone under the Luther linden tree in Ostramondra, Germany.
In the future family stories will be published on this website, that’s why you can find a new category at the menu on top.
We begin with the backgrounds of the
Bavarian noble line “von Axthelm”.
Now there are
signet rings available for proud family members 🙂

Hello dear Axhelms,
the last few weeks have been quiet on the website. But don’t worry, that’s because we’ve prepared the following new pages for you:
At this point, a big thanks you goes to Ekkehard Axthelm for providing us the scanned research reports of his father Heinz Axthelm.
at the page family chronicle you can now access the first research report by Heinz Axthelm of 1938:
“How a legend in family history comes about.”
Thanks to Dietmar Axthelm for typing the German text and Christopher Axthelm for proof-reading of the English text.
The other research reports are in preparation.
… or: What should our Axthelm Clan website look like?
You will find answers to these questions at the
Family Chronicle page from now on.
Enjoy reading 🙂
Hello dear Axthelms,
in the first post on this website you can read information about the
Axthelm coat of arms certificate.
The other pages of this website are currently under construction – we try to upload at least one new post per month.
This new website is going to be filled with content throughout the next months, so that you can inform yourself about the Axthelm family history. You will find these things and more on this homepage:
documents of the family chronicle
news, clan meetings etc.
All information is going to be online in German AND in English, so that our international Axthelm Clan (e.g. from America) is involved as well.
