Hey guys, I get to make the first message! OK, I am the GGGG Grandson of Gottlieb Kelling, shepherd, of Hornburg in the Vorharz.Keen to discuss Kelling ancestry with ALL Kellings.Actually, this GenForumon the Kelling family is a project of a group of 'us Kellings'. G'day to Jeff Kelling and all you other remote cousins. Now, let's see what we can come up with in names, locations, emigrants, occupations, and start linking together and build a Kelling lineage(s) back as far as possible.My Gottlieb Kelling was living in Hornburg in 1818 when his daughter Sophia was born. So, I guess he was born c.1790 and died about 1850.There was a cholera epidemic in Hornburg in 1850 that killed 120 people so who knows.Speak to me, Kellings of the world.........a bit dramatic, but what the heck.
