How many members of "the Stavenow family" are there and where can they be found?
In the telephone directory of the Federal Republic of Germany (CD-ROM edition) there are presently over 90 entries for this name. It mainly can be found in the Eastern part of Germany, in the Hamburg Area but also in the Southwest right down to the Black Forrest, to Bavaria and to the Lake Konstanz. An estimated 300 to 350 people bearing this name are presently living in Germany.
Moreover, the turmoil of the Thirty Years' War seem to have driven an unknown number of them to Sweden. In later times also, some people/families emigrated to Sweden. There are several families presently living there, carrying the name to Scandinavia. The name has a very good reputation there whenever culture and science are concerned.
