Theank you again for the material you sent me on this forum.I just got your email on Mrs. L.H.P.Schwerdtfeter. Unfortuneately, this is a different family.The Clara Louise Schwerdtfeger I've been trying to track down was born in New York in 1874. She married Richard Graff in 1895 and had three children with him. He passed on in 1911. My stepmother, one on her twin granddaughters recalls riding with her sister in the truck of Clara's second husband, a Samuel F. Jones. I found data on the marriage in the Mormon Database. My stepmother said she thought her grandmother died about 1935. I had to take another look the other night again at the Ferdinand and Helen Schwerdtfegger family. Ferdinand was born a number of years later after Clara and he would have been about 14 when she got married to Richard Graff. I did all sorts of sorts on the Mormon database against the Schwerdtfegger in New York, but no joy.Have found a lot of errors in that system. Have used in to find info on 4 more collateral families to my stepmothers as well as getting responses to my queries on various boards of GenForum. Really looking at some of the Census records makes you pause as well at the errors and omissions etc. My son and I had a time with them in tracking our Rivers ancestors back into Vermont and then into Quebec. There is a marvelous database(free access) in Quebec that I access via the French Canadian Society in Tolland, Connecticut. It has birth, marriage, death, and immigration records (from France)going back to about 1620.We got a lot of info out of it.
