Calling all Melander families! I found in one day, what I have been searching for over 10 years! ( Isnt the internet a wonderful thing?) Go to the familytreemaker.geneology.com/users/k/o/s/john-s-kostick/COL56.html webpage.This is the complete address I see in my location bar. I guess leave off the back-slash parts if it does not take your there.....I am not very computer literate...........BUT ANYWAY.......I found all my Melander relatives and Damlos and Widrowsky all the way back to 1600's in one book online on the above site called "FEHMARN FAMILIES" It is almost 2000 pages long and lists many many families including the Melanders. I saw the one Larry I believe, was looking for. It lists birth, marraige dates, and spouses names. You can then cross reference the spouses maiden names and find her parents etc. It is a treasure trove of information!!! Yeah....to whoever put it online!!! Have fun! Oh, and I think we are all "cousins".
