My father created a monster when he introduced me to family history. My history teachers would be so surprised that I finally "Get it"!
I have exhausted the Lieding family history which begins in 1598 in Thurigen, Germany. The Stockhorst family in Germany, Nebraska, California,Colorado and New Mexico. The family still owns the original Stockhorst Hof in Germany just outside of Hannover.
I am tracing the Henderson family from Iowa through Missouri and Tennessee and back into North Carolina circa 1777.
I am tracing the Lush family from Nebraska to Rhode Island circa 1777.
I am tracing the Wadsworth family from Nebraska to Connecticut in the 1600's.
I am tracing multiple Butterfield lines from Nebraska to Massachusetts in 1633.
I am tracing the Boelter family from Nebraska to Germany (Poland) circa 1600's.
In addition to these families - if a family was fortunate enough to marry into these families - I work on collecting family lines as far back as I can.
I enjoy Find-A-Grave as it is a valuable reference to confirm other sources.
