Blogging more on Ahrens and Nafketrom my favorite place - FARNHAMVILLE, Ia. In this case I am sharing information contributed by Mark Kuhlman from the book of Calhoun county History or Biography book. [ More on this book. ] I know the book is available for browsing online. Since I lost many of my favorites bookmarks, I can say, that probably the book is through Google books or Heritage Quest. And quite Possibly through Ancestry. In the past I have looked up many things. I just haven't viewed currently. Many things are still in boxes and I should really get to everything soon before Spring gets here. He sent a scan of pages of Information. I will Use these for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to click on the picture in hopes of a larger image, if your having problems seeing the words.
Note: I hope you are aware that one can purchase books through a used book sites online and also there are people who sell cd's and books at ebay aimed for us Genealogists.
Once I dig my book out of the box, I can look up something for you if you don't locate one. [ Wink]
My Comments, speculations on this information. Marks Grandfather Ahrens - Born and died at Bleckede Bleckede could be a city or it could be the area called Bleckede. As you know the Luhmann/ Schmidt came from Kleinburg, which is much Bleckede area. So research on the family church may vary from that of Nahrendorf. I am not even sure if the Dahlenburg archives would contain their information.
Until Mark pointed out that there was two separate immigrations, I had not been aware of this. I only had made note of those who said they were from Oldendorf.
Notice Dorethea spelling of her name. Their has been a few spelling errors on the census involving this family. But that spelling has been consistent.
Could the Henrichson family possibly be connected to those who live in Oregon that connect to some I have researched briefly?.
The first threshers of the area. I also have a picture of the Luhmanns during Threshing season. The Picture was scanned from the book on the Farnhamville village centennial. Which reminds me of my glass negatives from Irma Martin. I clearly remember that she asked my grandfather, if he knew anyone on them. It was this big old threshing machine belted to a Harley Davidson Motorcycle.???!!
Note, the local heritage center resources which were at a library held many scrapbooks of newspaper clippings of the local residents. Sorry, but I forget if it was Greene or Calhoun.
I thank Mark for his work and generosity and Gary Ramthun for his voluntary kindness.
As a young bookworm, day dreaming child, I always wondered about the cousins that I thought I must have in Germany [ Bleckede and Luneburg].
I was able to start Genealogy with computer around 2001, I still have limited knowledge in computer technology, grammer, spelling, and in the genealogy techniques.
I make up for my limits by my persistence in wanting to share all I can. Also by my persistence in my search.
I have discovered the family members of the 'Meyer Book'. I am still hoping to meet so many more of this vast family.
I started this blog to serve the need I have to talk about my details of genealogy [journal] of all my surnames. Especially the locations of family settlements.
Your warned, that there will be discussions of the details of the problem situations with the surnames I have had, etc. I am known to talk and talk about it until my family and friends eyes glaze over. I guess this blog may help save them from too much of that.
I hope family will join in help problem solve and share more of the various family stories and insights and ideas. Non family as well.
I have put the information out there and now I am waiting for family to come.
