I am looking for anyone who can help look deeper into my family. My g-pa is the nephew to Lester Flauding, born 4-11-1898. He was raised by Lester's sister Ruby Olive Fordham, in SmithCenter, Kansas. My g-pa tells me we are in direct line from George Flauding, who came from Germany, and was born 8-12-1848. I was told they came into Elkhart, Indiana. My main interests is the family from there, and the German ancestery; my g-pa said George changed the named to Flauding from von Fluding.
