Over thirty years ago my father came to me and suggested I document our small family. I will always be grateful to him for getting me started while we still had contacts in Denmark. Uncle Pete - I couldn't have done it without all your translations. At the time all research was done by mail and often required research fees and weeks waiting for a reply. What a welcome change the internet has brought! That "small" family has now grown by leaps and bounds and extends from Amana, Iowa and Beverly, Massachusetts across the pond to Denmark, Ireland and Germany.
We seem to have reached the "Last Leaf" on this branch of the Beck/Schiff tree but I hope I have dropped a few acorns that will take root and blossom for others.
The memorials I manage are all family, but if you are a close relative with more information to add, I will consider transferring memorials.
