Am so glad I came across this site. It has lead me to relatives I never see or knew about, new friends and many I will never see.

I recommend everyone to get involved in genealogy as you will be amazed at what you can find about your roots and where it will lead you. It is a history lesson in itself..

To my cousin's Maurice and Kay, I am very thankful to have found you. You have been a tremendous help with our family history and I am very grateful.

I am also very interested in my Mother's side of the family. The Mennonite's and our distant Amish families. I am very intrigued in their ways and lifestyles.

Would love to find more about our Polish root's. I have very little information regarding my paternal grandmother's family: Rose Theresa Lechowicz. All the searches I have made become road blocks. Possibly due to the uprisings, wars etc., I am thinking maybe many of the documents were destroyed?

Same with our "Dutch" roots, the Alder's. Henry being my 2nd great grandfather and his brother John my great grand uncle. From Netherlands/Holland and lived in Kent County, Michigan.

Surnames I am interested in are:

My Father's side:

De La Chaumette, DeLashmutt, DeLashmut, DeLashmitt, DeLashmit, DeLashmett, DeLashmet, Lashmit, Lashmitt, Lashmett, Lashmet, Lashmutt, Lechowicz, Wiklanski, Gibes, Kozinksi, Alders, Rominger, Stuart (Stewart), Padgett, Nelson, Palazy, Zulkiewski (Zulski)...

My Mother's side:

Burkhart (Burckhart, Burkhard, Burckhard, Burkhardt) Snider (Snyder, Schneider) Brubacher (Brubaker, Brubacker, Bruppacher) Eby, Lehman, Gehman, Bontrager, Weber, Weaver, Detweiler, Gingrich & Gingerich, Wenger, Sherk, Gerber, Hostetter, Herr, Yoder, Bauman/Bowman, Martin, Good/Gut, Hershey (Yes I am distant cousin of "Milton Snavely Hershey")...

Would love to hear from more relatives!!

Last of all, if you don't see certain information on a memorial or an obit that doesn't show certain living relatives, it is because of privacy laws. Unless I have your permission I cannot add your name.

Jana do you still have my email address. I was going to send you an obituary, but can't find your address. It is for Anna Rose Smith,(Mrs. A.D.) (Keller). I see you have her parents in Cross Village.

Hi Jana

I will ask my sister-in-law if she wants me to transfer her sister to you - Arlyle is the one who asked me to create a Memorial for her sister, Joann, as she knows that I do this on Dond A Grave. I will call her this week.

Theron & Helen Smith
Detweiller & Vader
My husband's grandmother was Susanna Detweiller, and his other grandmother was Vivian Vader. If you go on findagrave and follow Theron Smith (born 1940) backwards, you can go back to 1736 on the Detweiller side and quite a ways back on the Vader side. (not sure how far without looking it up). Most are connected, but I may have missed a few connections. We met with Glenda a few years ago and shared information. Helen

I see you know a lot about Indian names. I am working on my grandfathers family. He was adopted my the miksabi, William in good heart. He lived there until this person died. His mother was part of the tribe so it seems like she would have family buried there. On marriage license it states bird Claflin married agnes green. That is it. Zeno claflin name was changed to eno Mcsawby. I am finally understanding all the different names. It starts out as a native name and keeps changing through the years. This all started because of heart problems our family. Everyone dies young from bad hearts. If you have Ny info please contact me. Thank you.
