This project is a place for the Crowninshield Family Association to track all Crowninshields and their descendants on Geni and to work together on developing stronger profiles and sourcing. We are focusing on the blood descendants of the Crowninshield progenitor, Johannes Kaspar Richter von Kronenschildt.

The goals are to:

- Clean up and expand Crowninshield profiles

- Merge Crowninshield profiles as necessary

- Add the extensive paper files of the CFA to Geni

If you are a Crowninshield or interested in the family but not a member of the CFA, please do not hesitate to join! You are still very much welcome here.
