Contemplating a theme or name for our UHLMAN Family Home Page , I decided on what seems to be an appropriate centerpiece, a  wooden table. Johannes Ulmann, our earliest known ancestor, is listed as a "Tischmacher" or table maker  in the church files at Beringen, Switzerland. Ten generations later, I as a direct descendent, also made a table during a period in my life when woodworking was my favored hobby. My father, brother, uncle, cousin, all chose carpentry as a profession, as were many of the Uhlmans listed in our genealogy. Others were loggers and woodsmen. Thus many of our Uhlman families' lives have centered around "wood", in one way or another.
