Map for Oldendorf, Nahrendorf, Neetzendorf, Ventschau , Eichdorf and other villages by the Elbe river.

I am so pleased to be able to present a wonderful map of our area East of the Elbe river. My area of interest covers such a vast area of family residents. It shows Radenbeck where Meyer came from by Thomasburg all the way down to Göhrde as well as by Dannenberg.

Be sure to scroll north and south and east.

I have added map views of the west area Of Luneburg Heide area by Munster and Bergen Celle.
And then a few posts back you find the tree of Maria Dorothea Heins. Which is my current work in progress. Continue back to see the tree.

Found the Bell line -- Fairmont, Minnesota

Isn't it funny how you can find some information by chance. It seems like that, but is it really.

I may have explained once about the mystery man in Fairmont, Martin county in Minnesota to many of you. For those of you who have not heard of him, I will tell you. This man was a relative of mine he said. He told me that he had been asked to "keep an eye on me" while I lived there. My father did that. Oh boy what a surprise to me that was. Once I asked about how he was related. Two days for an hour or two he filled me in. He did it with associations. And it worked. It was too much to take in at once like that. I wrote very little down. I do still remember most of the associations. Over time my research brought back memories of what he told me. These associations, I will share later.

Note: I am going to edit this story later. It shall suffice for now.

One association that I will share now is the tie to Nahnsen / Meyer of Iowa. Perhaps even Murray. It is the tree connection to ours that I saw this morning. I may have seen the tree before. But as I browsed the tree the main name that rang a bell was the name BELL. One of those that was mentioned to me. Another surname of importance was the name Sorensen.

I promise to come back and work with this for you as soon as I can. I am sure I can pick up the laptop and share a bit more. At least the website link will be a start. Right?

So at anyrate. Have patience, I will be back to give the information that I learned today. It brings me close to one of my goals. That goal is to find that mystery family in Fairmont.
So until tomorrow then. Good bye.

Added Another Genealogist to my Links--The Geneaholic

I simply could not help myself. With a category like
Genealogicus Interruptus terminology, how could I not want to link to that.

At any rate he is a self confessed Geneaholic.
I am not sure, if he is on a twelve step program. I guess I will research his blog to find out that later. It will be easy to do now that I have put him on my blog roll. [I accidently deleted it once and now it is restored.]

Subject: Frank Luhmann Family of Farnhamville, Iowa & Hendricks, Minnesota

I am the grandaughter of Frank Luhmann.

I think this is the Luhmann family you are trying to locate.

The Luhmann family immigrated from Bleckede (Kleinburg), Province of Hanover,
Germany in the spring of 1892. The farm one half mile west of Farnhamville,
Iowa, leading out from Main Street, was purchased from Obed Bassett.

Family arriving were:
Paternal Grandfather: Ernest Friederich (1811-1896)
Father: Christian Friederich Wilhelm (1847-1906)
Mother: Elizabeth Magdalene Louise Schmidt (1847-1916)
Son: Fred (1873-1906)
Son: Wilhelm (1874-1952)
Daughter: (Eliese (1876-1962)
Son: Heinrich (1878-1930)
Son: Franz Ernest Friederich (1882-1961)
Daughter: Dora (1887-1973)
Son: Carl (1888-1971)
Daughter: Lena (1890-1952)

Fred never married.

Wilhelm (Will) married Caroline Kandler. 2 Daughters Martha and Caroline

Eliese (Lizzie) married Wilhelm Wohne. 4 daughters Hilda, Lena, Frieda and

Heinrich (Hank) married Caroline Abel. 4 sons Otto, Leo, Earl and Archie

In 1909 Franz (Frank) married Bertha Anna Marie Burger (1892 - 1974) who came
to America from Hamburg, Germany in 1908. They remained on the estate until
it was sold to Joe Givens in 1914. Then with Daughters Gertrude Marie (1911)
and Frances Magdalene (1913-1995) they moved to a farm purchased near
Hendricks, Minnesota. Born there were Marie Antoniette (1917) and Margaret
Helen (1920).

Gertrude married Frank Anton Walter in (1938). 2 Children Frank Joseph
(1939) and Frances Ann (1944)
Frances married Vern King (1932). 2 Children Lynne Luhmann (1942) and James
Frederick (1946)
Marie married Glenn Ablett (1935). 3 Children Kay Frances (1937-1939),
Connie Lea (1939) and Keith Luhmann (1941)
Margaret married Don Earwood (1940). 4 Children Fred Russell (1941), Nancy
Luh (1949), Donald Edgar (1952) and Terry E. (1955)

Dora married Oscar Matice. 2 Children Clarence and Farlow. Dora later
married Kamill Friemel.

Carl married Eva Hall (1892-1922). 2 children Avis Darlyne and Eva Doryl
(1922-1922) Carl married Nellie Woodcock in 1926. Adopted daughter Verda

Lena married Edward Perry. 2 sons Carle E and Jack L.

If this information is helpful to you, please let me know. I could go a
little farther down the line.

I just started looking into my family history. All 4 of my grandparents were
born in Germany.
................ My Aunt Gert is also related to the Vogels and
Taslers thru her marriage to Frank Walter.
