As people trace the Pape surname and find one in the Concordia area, I receive requests to find out whether I have a connection to any of these families. While I have a fairly extensive trace of the ancestors of my grandfather Jacob Pape (1868-1956), I had not done much with the other Papes in the area.

Briefly, one will find three distinct Pape families that settled in the immediate Concordia, MO area, continuing to live in the area through the 1900s. To date, no close connection has been established between these three branches. In addition, there are various other Pape names appearing in the records during the latter half of the 1800s. Again, there is no known connection between some of them and the three pioneer families.

A short summary of these families can be downloaded from the following link, ConcordiaAreaPapes.pdf. Note that this a work in progress and may be updated from time to time.

An Ortsfamilienbuch (town family book) for Selsingen, Germany is posted on-line at http://www.online-ofb.de/selsingen/index.php?lang=en. Books of this type attempt to compile as much family history as possible for all the residents in a particular area from church records, civil registration records, court and land records, and other sources. The book for Selsingen includes a number of Papes that came to Missouri and their ancestors. Reviewing this book, there are some discrepancies with the information contained in the ConcordiaAreaPapes file posted earlier.

This file has been updated to note the differences and can be downloaded using the same link, i.e. ConcordiaAreaPapes.pdf.
