The Riplinger Family of Norfolk, VAUpdated September 5, 2000
8250 Carlton Street
My research into my surname Riplinger brought about many exciting hours of investigation.I never realized that this name is represented in a number of states in the U.S.
My portion of the Riplinger's came from Prussia/Germany and settled in Jennings County, Indiana.Most of them stayed in Indiana with a few moveing to Kentucky.
Through my research I have found that there is a Riplinger, Wisconsin in Clark County.I am sure that they came from the same area as my decendants and that somewhere back in Germany I may be related to these Riplingers.
On my mothers side of the family I am researching the name Schack (Szczech) and Klugiewicz.these are Polish and German in origin.Unfortunately, as it happens in Genealogy Research, I have hit the old brick wall.I have a photograph of my grandfathers family but only know my grandfathers name.
I will be updating this page as often as research allows.If you have any questions or additions please feel free to notify me by email.
