Welcome to the DÜRING page!

Scope: To bring the families of Düring, Von Düring, Doehring, Dieringer, Dueringer, During, Duering, and other relatives together. The material below is courtesy of Robert Düring, Salzgitter, Germany. Did you know there is a club named “von Düringscher Familienverband” in Stade, Germany that meets every three years? The committee last time I heard (1995) was Klaus von Düring, 2861 Stendorf, Germany AND Christian Freiherr von Düring-Ulmenstein, Köln, Germany. Lastly, I will note here that y-chromosome DNA testing showed that Düring and Duerinck/Durinck families are not closely related. This, however, was based only on 1 Düring and 1 Von Düring samples.

Johannes Düring, born 1766, died 04.11.1852 in Helmstedt, Germany.
