The Lori family can be traced back to Germany.It is my goal to follow my family roots as far as I can, hopefully until there just aren't any records left.I am currently following other branches of my family and the records of those who have married into my family.I'm so surprised and pleased to have gotten this far!I am also fortunate to have my great-grandfather and some great-aunts living to increase my data.The information they have added is priceless.I would never have gotten so far without them.Through my family's records, I even found census records where our family name had been mis-spelled.It was a wonderful feeling to find these people and know, through information of children and birthdates, that I had found ancestors.
I am also researching my other branch, the Wicke family.I don't have a lot of information, as I am out of touch with this side.I hope through investigating and good luck to find out more!
There is also a branch of the Shaw family, through an uncle, that I have included.All of this research was already done through his aunt, so it was easy for me to add his family.
Last, but not least, I have added my soon-to-be husband's family, or what I have so far.The Zollman family goes back to the 1600's, and much of this work was already done as well.It seems I am getting everyone's family tree expanded but my own!Through his mother, I also have quite a lot of the Singleton family as well.They actually have a book with the lineage researched way back!Lucky!
If there are any of us out there with more stories, information, or documents, please, contact me and share in our family history!
