Researching: Mears - my paternal grandfather - Moses Mears was the son of Louis Mears (or Mear, or Meir) born May 25, 1847 in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. Moses'mother was Lenah Bamfield.
Breidenbach - my maternal grandfather, Peter Breidnebach was the son of another Peter Breidenbach, born in the north Rhine area of Germany.
Ernst - maternal grandmother Maria Bernardina Ernst, daughter of Alexander Andreas Kaspar Ernst and Maria Theresia Velmerig, both from the area around Werl in Westfalia, Germany. I can trace this line back to the mid 1700's.
Ryan - my husbands family. We can trace through his maternal line to Sarah Crawford born in/around Derry, Ireland.
