I live in California and find that most of my work in Find A Grave relates to creating and maintaining memorials of near-and-distant relatives.

For many years I lived in Germany and frequently visited the village of my ancestors - Elsoff, Siegen-Wittgensteiner Landkreis, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. In collaboration with their local historian, over the years we've uncovered and translated a treasure-trove of sourced information on the Hüster/Hiester line.

I am a strong supporter of facts based on sourced material, and strive for accuracy; where there is information in doubt, I will note it as such. I appreciate what information you may have to share and/or corrections based on documentation ~ and thank you in advance for your providing such facts to me.
