Sometime between 1835 and 1844, Stephen Siefert, Barbara Ramstien Siefert and son William left Germany for Venezuela. In 1844, while in Venezuela, daughter Mary was born. Sometime between 1944 and 1847 the Sieferts left Venezuela for New Orleans where my ggrandmother Wilhelmina was born in 1847. Has anyone had any success tracing ancestors through Venezuels? I'd be interested in hearing about how you did it.
