Comments:
I probably shouldn't be adding my info because it is so far removed from your description of your work.
However, here goes; My father in law George Schultz was born in Galicia in 1890 of parents who were German Colonizers there. I know many of the colonizer families who originated in the Rheinland. In thirty years of searching I have had no luck so what the H--- give a shot.
SCHULTZ, STEINER and SCHMIDT of Lubianki, Vyschchi, (Wyzsze) Raion Zbarazh,
Oblast Ternopil, Galicia, Ukraine.

I am almost positive I am looking in the wrong area (this site), but I can't help myself. I will look at anything available in the rare chance I find someone.
I did 20 years in the Navy and 18 1/2 with the Customs Service so, along with you, I knew when to pull the pin.
Thanks for your work

What towns in Germany are you researching? Dollendorf, Cropsen
Where are you from? Aurora, IL
Comments:
The Dollendorf site is great; I found a lot of my relatives there. However, how would I go about locating relatives from towns in other regions of Germany?

Here's a brief synopsis of my German ancestry:

Grandmother - Mary Alice Geduldig - born in Chicago, IL
Her parents - Edward Jay Geduldig (born in Ottawa, IL) and Mary Lee Sherman (born in Maysville, KY)
His parents - Anthony Geduldig (born in Dollendorf; emigrated to Ottawa, IL) and Anna Dora Suckert (born in Cropsen, Germany)
His parents - Wilhelm Geduldig (born in Dollendorf) and Gertrude Himmels (born in Dollendorf)
Anna Dora Suckert's parents are ? Suckert and Elizabeth Blue (born in Merzwiefe, Germany

I now need to go back a generation to the parents of Wilhelm Geduldig and the parents of his wife, Gertrude Himmels, as well as better data on Anna Dora Suckert and her parents. Also, how do I find out if Anthony Geduldig and Anna Dora Suckert were married in Germany or in Illinois? If you can help me, please e-mail me at the above e-mail address! Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I am an Australian trying to find out any information about my great great grandparents who both came from the HESSEN (RHEINGAU) region around 1850. They were GEORGE JOSEPH WEBER b.3/10/1832 in/around MITTELHEIM and ANNA MARIA WEBER (nee STROHSCHMITTER, I'm not too certain of the spelling) b. 1835 in/around GEISENHEIM. I am hoping to locate any records about them or their family and find out if there are any other descendents still around. Their only surviving son GEORGE WEBER b. 1862 was the only direct link to our family in AUSTRALIA. Thanks for your time.

Comments:
Maybe I'm wrong, but rather than have us search by town name, maybe it'd be better to let us search by surname. Many don't know the towns where their ancestors lived. And I'm not sure that everyone knows where the Eifel region is, either. "Eifel" is not a word I knew until I went to Mayen, near Ditscheid.

I did not find anything. The reason I am looking here is that I have heard there are people with my surname in Germany. In the IGI I found some mentions of Catholics with my surname in Bavaria. People in my family and other families we cannot find connections to have all stated that our family ancestors were French Huguenots. I have found no evidence of that. I would like to know my family's origins.

Daughter is stationed in Germany at Ramstein AFB. I have been to visit her and driven through the Rhein Country. It is very impressive. Unfortunately my Christopher, Soostmeyer and Thews are from the northern area. Wiewel my husband's mom's family are Catholic so I assume that they could be from somewhere around the Rhein or another point in the South of Germany. I haven't check out your pages yet so Don't yet have a comment.

My father's paternal grandparents ...
George Peter Eller and Margaret Hammer -
he was born on 28 Dec 1843, and she on 25 Dec 1844 ...
entered the U.S. from Germany about (just after?) the
Civil War. Certainly in the US, and probably in Germany, they were Catholics.
We don't know where they came from. My grandfather,
their first child, was born in PA on 2 Sep 1867. We
have been told that my surname is common in Southern
Germany, but know little more. PA records have proven
of little help, so we have a brick wall.
Are your records likely to be of any help?

What towns in Germany are you researching? Town is unknown
Where are you from? Porterville, Califonria
Comments:
Hello,
I liked your picture. I am trying to get my surname back to Germany. Hulstine is not very common in the States but have been unable to trace to Germany. Last known relative is Peter Hulstine born in 1789 in Virginia. Family history states that our family came from Germany. I have looked under various spellings but have not connected their either. My brother while in the Army in Germany in the 70's was in Grafinvere (not sure of spelling) Germany on the Cech border and the Cech Guard's name tag was Hulstine. This has made me continue to seek the Hulstine spelling. Probably they were gypsy's. I have been doing research since 1983 but cannot make the connection to Germany. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am at a dead end. Thank you. Gloria

A great web site!

Have you ever encountered the surname GERHARDSTEIN during your research? We assume the surname may have originated at or near Gerolstein, as the castle Burg Gerhardstein is located there, est. 1150. I have seen a Pontleon Gerhardstein in a ca. 1650 Gerolstein record. We know that Paul Gerhardstein lived at Busenberg, Germany from about 1750-1770 and then relocated to Bas-Rhin, Alsace. Paul's grandson Johann Adam Gerhardstein emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1830, and located in Seneca County, Ohio.

Keep up the excellent work.

My grandfather, John Francis Zitter, was supposedly from Germany. Born 1884, he once told my father that the letters "von" or "van" was dropped from the front of the Zitter name. As my grandfather has passed on and my father will not speak of his childhood, I am at a loss--literally--trying to find out any information.

Any Suggestions?

What a wonderful gift you have given to those who have ancestors from Germany. Unfortunately so far I have not found any names from my husband's family. We think his grandfather was from Germany, but his funeral records say Austria. I am looking through all your lists just in case they may have lived in Germany but were from Austria. Thank you so much for this sight.

I have done the most German research in the Ersingen/Bilfingen (now Kampfelbach) area. These small towns are located between Karlsuhe and Phorzeim. The Lingenfeld Roesch family is located close to Karlsuhe along the Rhine River. I orginally located the towns through a Branch Mormon library many years ago. I found the Ersingen church records on microfish which eventually led me to visiting the town and many relatives. I have visited ERsingen four times and Lindgenfed three times. I also have ancestors from Dieburg, close to Frankfurt.

You have a very informative site, so much so that I posted your URL on the "Kopp Family Genealogy Forum" for all to see. Hopefully, it'll help someone.
I know this is a long-shot, but for years I've been looking for the heritage of Johann Andreas Kopp, born 10 January 1820, and his brother, Gottlieb Kopp, born 1828. Concerning their origin, I know only that they came to the U.S. from Baden, Germany in 1847 and 1848, respectively.
Again, you have a very good site. And it looks great as is.

Where are you from? Whidbey Island, WA
Comments:
am a descendant of Frederick William Rose and Dorothia Marie Pultzer. Frederick and Marie were my great-grandparents. Frederick was born July 15, 1844 in Dresden, Germany. Marie was born December 15, 1846, in Stettin, Germany. They were married October 1, 1868, and their first six children were born in Germany. My grandmother was the first child born in this country after they immigrated here in April, 1881 and settled in Plymouth, Clayton County Iowa, and later moved to Mason City, Iowa. Besides my grandmother, they had four other children born in this country.

I have been working on the Rose genealogy for a couple of years now, and have only been able to find two second cousins who reside in Iowa and California. I’m sure with such a large family there must be others related to this family.

Comments:
My gggrandfather John William Meier (later Meyers) b. 1835 came from Germany. I believe he came over in about 1865-8 as my great grandfather Frederick Meyers was about 9 at the time. John's wife died aboard ship on the way over, I have been told by family that she died in childbirth. There were two other children Augusta and Charlie, all children born in Germany.

JOhn later married a Dorothea Goodman, who was a widow with 3 children (she may have been on the ship).

The Riesener and Trischman families came to America in about 1913 or so. They are my daughter-in-laws family. He was Julius Riesener and she was Gretchen Trischman. They married after they got to the U.S.

Harry Klaus came to Britain in 1939 and joined the British army. Weird or what? Father and son on different sides. My grandfather met my granmother whilst liberating Belgium during the war. he also had a sister but I do not have her name. Anyone with any suggestions on doing a trace - they will be greatly appreciated. I am a complete beginner at this and keep hitting brick walls.

My LANGE family came in 1862 when my Gt. Grandfather Fred was six. I have not found his parents, a census, or any record of their names or his birthplace yet. I am now waiting for death records of his brother and sister. My HERZOG was Daniel who was born in 1825 in Prussia/Germany and came to America as a young man without his family. Again there is no record of his parents or birthplace. I am waiting for a possible church record or death certificate. I may have the correct ship. I don't see how to search your records unless I go town by town.

My ancestor, Johannes Hartmann, emmigrated to the U.S. from Germany in 1834, at the age of 23. At that time, he apparently Americanized his name to John Hartman. I have no idea from where in Germany he came, but I was told several years ago that records on him and his parents were on file in a Catholic church in what was then known as East Berlin. If you come across anyone fitting this descrption, I would be very grateful if you would e-mail me.

A couple of Web site suggestions.

For those letters for which you do not have any towns, do not have that letter link to a page at all (remote the A Href=).

Also when I click on a letter and I get the page of towns, and I click on a town. Don't make me click again, just link from that page of towns directly to the corresponding .txt file. That will save me an unnecessary click.

These are supposed to be from Bavaria, but who knows. Some census records say they were and some just say Germany. They had relatives named HALDE, from Biern?, but don't know if they lived in the same vicinity or not. Peter was in the USA, before 1847, probably in PA; then to Washington Co., WI; then to Dodge Co.,MN; then to Clark Co.,SD. His wife was Barbara Gerner, but whether they were married before coming to the USA, I don't know.

You have a great site! I especially enjoyed how you shared a personal part of you and blended it nicely into your genealogy work. Your girls are adoreable!
I was not able to find my three primary names I am researching, Deters, Gottsacker and Weinrich. I found a couple of Schultz, but I could not link into them at this time. My great-grandmother Henrietta Dorothea Weinrich was born in Germany and came to America as a toddler with her family. She married the son of another german immigrant by the last name of Deters. His mother was also from Germany and had the maiden name Gottsacker. I have not been able to establish where in Germany they came from, but since you seem to have done such a thorough job in your area, and I could not match up, I have to believe it was elsewhere. With as much detail as you have on your pages, you probably have made several people very happy with the work you have done! Thank you for doing such a great job!

I like the way you have your surnames set up, one can know at a glance if anyone they are looking for can be found here. I haven't been at this genealogy very long but I have found that the Gildemeisters are hard to track down once you cross the ocean. They arrived in New Orleans in 1865 aboard the ship Germania. This is all the information I have about them. Prussia being Poland now makes it a little difficult to find them but isn't that the fun of genealogy?

What surnames in Germany are you researching? Swango
What towns in Germany are you researching? Schwangau--South Bavaria
Where are you from? Ohio--Ky. originally
Comments:
Our Swangos are supposed to have come from or around the small town of Schwangau in southern Bavaria. A family group of us visited there this past summer. We have found evidence that suggests that William Swango--or Swanger as people from Schwangau were often called--landed in Philadelphia in October 1747 and that they came on the ship "Two Brothers." There were 3 teenage sons, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who was the oldest. Jacob signed the oath of allegence for the family. Apparently, the mother died on the trip over and was buried at sea.

Was just wondering if you knew anything about how people got their surnames in Germany. Some people have asked if the Swangos could have had another name and were called Swango merely because they came from Schwangau--which means "Swan county, by the way. From what we have found, the Swangos were associated with Schwangau clear back to the 1200's and before. I had always assumed that they took their name from the town. People didn't used to have surnames--note the Irish and Scotch Mc, and Mac meaning "son of" as well as the Welsh "ap" also meaning son of.
We are currently updating the the 1976 edition of THE SWANGO FAMILY and I would love to be able to clear this up to my own satisfaction--and hopefully the satisfaction of other family members. I am especially interested since my paternal grandparents were 2nd cousins and both go back to the Swango line. My 3X Grandfather Swango is, therefore, my 3X great-grandfather twice.
Well, enough. It is good talking to someone who is also of German descent.

Hi Thomas,

You have a great website with some very good information. I am trying to find a town called Alb Olburz (most probably defunct since I can't find it anywhere). My ancestors, the Cholkes are from this town. I am assuming that "alb" could be a prefix which stood for "Elb" as in river and if the town could have been located somewhere along the river. Any help or information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Great picture. Your Engineer castles look good. I started wearing them in 1963 and took them off in 1980. But, thats another story.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which angle you are coming from), my Sleeper line came from Germany. To date, I have not been able to make the connection.

What towns in Germany are you researching? Stetten
Where are you from? Trenton, NJ
Comments:
Hi

When I saw your Web site listed Julie Case' "Missing Links," I jumped to this site in hopes that Stetten might be found. No luck, but maybe you could offer some guidance. Stetten is in the Wurttemberg (?) province. My great grandfather, Christopher Everard (name was probably Evrard originally as best we can determine), and he came to the USA in 1831 to settle in Lewis County, NY. According to my American ancestors he came from Stetten, France, in the Alsace Lorraine province. No Stetten can be found there. Because Stetten, Germany, is close to Alsace Lorraine, we believe there may be a connection even though we have not found any evidence that connects them. As you probably know, Alsace Lorrain did belong to Germany on several occasions; and post World War I it was returned to France. My great grandfather spoke French, but he may have been able to speak German, too.

Christopher's wife's first wife's name is Ann Marie Fox, but we understand that the German spelling would be different. He also had a second wife (not validated yet) named Emily Egloff. We do know there were many Egloffs in nearby Switzerland.

Do you have any suggestions for how we might untangle our web?

By the way, your site is clean, clear, and uncluttered; it gets right to the point. You were nice looking 30 years ago, but I'm sure you still are, at least that's what I tell myself now that I'm nearing 70. Cheers

You certainly have spent a lot of time in doing your research? My great grandfather, Henry A. T. Schott was born either in Frankfurt on Meine or Province Warsaw in 1835. I haven't found anything so far in Germany. My great grandmother, Adeline Denis b. 1852 was from Bremen. I have a lot to learn about searching German genealogy.

You have done a terrific job in searching your roots. Congratulations!

My mother was from a German family that settled in Osage Co., Mo. in 1846. They were mostly from the Delbuck, Paderborn area of Germany. The Hundepohl was from a little further up in German, I believe Westenholz. Have some of them back to 1640. The Catholic Church records were wonderful. I would like to make a trip to Germany. The LDS Library has been my best source for German research.

Have very little to go on with these names because my greandfater went by DeWar and the rest of his family went by DeVera from what little I can find out. I know my grandfater came over in 1901 and his name was Anton DeVera on the ships passengerlist.

I have found some cousins in the New Jersery area where my grandfather grew up and these cousins say the family was really a mixed up family and one son along with my grandfather ran away from home and the one son no one ever knew where he went at all.
