Hi Casey -I returned from church and came in to check my Email.I am so excited!You are first one to reply about the message.Ilse Schwerdtfeger from Denmark Emailed me directly and we have been corresponding back and forth(mostly back because I just don't have time to be in here at the computer all the time).Ilse's husband's great-grandfatherand my husband's great-grandfather were brothers.
Who were your ancestors on down the line from Yost Heinrich? 1) Ernst August Schwerdtfeger 2) Dorothea Maria C. Schwerdtfeger 3) Ernst Wilhem Schwerdtfeger
There was a German girl going to school here and she got the information for us from Germany.I just figured we would probably never go any further back then the 4 brothers who came to the U>S> after their parents died to live with their mother's sister in Kansas.
I would love to have your family's line clear up to the present if youhave one and I will get you ours (if you aren't in a real beig hurry) if you want it.
I have seen it spelled "Yost, Just" don't know which is right.
Anxious to hear from you.Where do you live ? How old are you?I am pretty nosy aren't I?My husband, Orlie Dean, is almost 71 and we live in Alva, Oklahoma, USA.
