        I found that there are a lot of weird and "what if" facts in hitler's family tree.  Some Cool, Some interesting, and some just flat out crazy.  You See, HItler's childhood, and early life isn't like the average Joe's.  He was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria on April 20, 1889.  His parents were Alois and Klara HItler, shown in the tree, and had five brothers, and sisters.  Sadley, four of his siblings didn't even survive childhood.  The only one who did was Paula Hitler, who eventually died in 1960.  Another depressing fact is that his dad died on January 3, 1903 when he was only 14, and his mom died of breast cancer when he was 19.  So, with just a brief description of his childhood, without further ado, here are some family tree facts:

-Now, Alois Hitler did not marry Klara Hitler first, he married Franziska Matzclberger, who had 2 kids.  Interesting as it sounds, Franziska died on August 10, 1884 of tuberculosis.  This forced Alois to remarry, and have 5 kids- one being Adolf Hitler!  So, if there was a cure back then for teburculosis, Franziska probably wouldn't have died, along with 6 million Jews!

-You may think that the family generations' passed down name was Hitler, however, it wasn't.  The real family name is Hiedler, which you can see in the tree.  When Alois's parents married however, He was Given his mom Maria Anna Schicklgruber's madien name- Schicklgruber.  Alois later Changed his last name to Hitler.  You can probably tell why.

-Speaking of Maria Anna Schicklgruber, her Mom's name was Anna Maria Schicklgruber.  Try saying both of their names five times fast!

Well, This presentation hopefully has been a fun one, and I hope you all got something out of Hitler's family by this website.  If you ever need info, or want to learn more, remember the site: lafamilytree.tripod.com .  Thank you.
