David GANZ (1680-1750), a street musician playing in spas, has begot a
descendency of several generations of composers, conductors, all being
also virtuoso soloists.

With an international group of genealogists, we have assembled a
descendant list of over 400 names, spanning 8 generations, the living
descendants not being included. The GANZ (also Gans, Gansz, Gantz,..)
from Weisenau seem not to be connected with their namesakes from
Hannover, Frankfurt/Main or other major cities.

We invite possible unknown descendants to contact us, giving as
comprehensive details as possible on their relationship. We will send them
the full descendant list in the hope that they will assist in extending it
with further "cousins".

Main surnames in the list are : DAEHN, GERNSHEIM, HAMBURG, HERZ,
KAEUFFER, MARX, MOHR, NATHAN, SICHEL, SIMON, STERN.

Limited to 4 generations, this is how the list appears :
