Very prevalent in this family tree are the families of craftsmen whose trades were passed on from generation to generation. Among others can be found the following trades: coopers, butchers, spinners, gardeners, taylors, “spice-makers“, hat-makers, furriers, coppersmiths, linen weavers, oil millers, strappers, ropemakers, shoemakers, joiners, cloth merchants, bakers, clock makers, wine-growers, tilers, carpenters. Many of the ancestors were master craftsmen and enjoyed a high reputation in the areas in which they lived.
An interesting line in this family tree is the family of the coppersmith Vincenz Jury. The descendants of Vincenz Jury made the four-horsed chariot on the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin (designed by Shadow), as well as many well-known sculptures in Potsdam such as those on the New Palace (das Neue Palais) and the Orphanage (das Waisenhaus) .
The starting point of this family tree is the family of the master clock-maker Georg Malchert and his wife Hedwig née Müller, from Quedlinburg in the Harz mountains, whose sons Kurt (*20.9.1921) and Georg (*28.7.1924) also became craftsmen. Kurt Malchert learned the trade of cabinet-maker and is now the owner of the Hercynia factory in Hambühren which makes folding doors.
Georg Malchert became a master clock maker and
took over his father‘s business in Quedlinburg in the Harz Mountains on 1.1.1956.
If one researches the origins of the Malcherts of today, two places turn up again and again: Schwedt on the Oder and Trebblin. The Schwedt Malcherts were settled in the neighbouring Friedrichsthal in 1753 by Frederick the Great after the first settlers of 1751 had left the inhospitable area around the Oder. These Malcherts are said to have come from Alt-Lietzgöricke, in the area around the east of the Oder.
The Trebblin Malcherts probably also originate from this area, although no proof has yet been found.
Connections with similar names such as Malchow,
Malcher etc, clearly do not exist.
