Abeln Genealogy    

USA now
In this chapter I will describe what we know of the genealogy of the Abeln families in the USA now.

How many en where?
In the USA live now about 200 Abeln+ x Abelen and 100(?) Abeling families. So there are about 400 Abeln surnames and 600 individuals with the surname Abeln/Abelen/Abeling. I doubt if all this Abelen and Abeling have their ancestors in the " Abeln area" (see germany now).

Below you can see the regional distibution of thia families in 1880 and 1920.
