Hi Jim Transue this is Jim Transue and I got your message about Transues in the west. I now have a 3000 name TRANSUE/TRANSOU data bank of relatives dating back to 1600s. I believe every TRANSUE/TRANSOU in US originated with Abraham Transou born December 25, 1700 near Mutterstadt Germany. A group of researchers are attempting to upgrade this data to publish an update of the Wendell Transue book. I have checked your names in the data bank and find no references to these people. Would like to work with you to attempt to attach them to our existing data.
