All known Neuharts descend from a single patriarch, Christophel Neuhart (1599-1654), a resident of Rumbach, Germany. In 1626, he united with Margaret Ostertag (1605-1667), daughter of the village innkeeper, and granddaughter of the town mayor.

It is through the Ostertag family that the Neuharts trace descent from royalty. This noble past is described in the 260 pages of Neuhart Nobility, second edition. Over 2,000 regal ancestors appear in this illustrated volume (double the number of forebears in the first edition). These progenitors are depicted on over 200 family charts.
