I retired 5 years ago after living in the Washington DC area for 20 years. While I have not become a geneaologist, I now have time to try to find out a little about where I came from and who my ancestor were. My family is from Wisconsin and I know that my grandfather, Andrew Arends, was born in Fredonia, Wisconsin in 1879. That's about as far back as I can go but I would appreciate any help anyone could offer on the family. In return, I have some information on subsequent activities of the family. Thanks very much.
