The members of the various different spellings of the Family Keferstein* in 1892 founded the “Geschlecht Keferstein” as a cooperative with 69 members altogether. This was later transformed into the “Verein Familie Keferstein”, (The Keferstein Family Association). This club first met on October 19, 1919 in Halle, Saale for a family day on which a new statute was adopted. The club was deleted in 1948 from the club register of Halle, Saale.
Through the initiative of Gottfried Keferstein (Hamburg) and Hans-Joachim Keferstein (Bonn) the Kefersteins* were able to reunite in 1983 and the association “Familienverein Keferstein e.V.” was registered on 19.06.1986 at the district court in Bonn in preparation for the first family reunion between 04.11 – 05.11.1983 in Heustenstamm.
Today the club has more than 100 family members and supporters worldwide. The family days, which take place every two years, contribute to the realization of our goals and have already led to lasting friendships and family relationships.
