The FEB Family Home Page Updated December 28, 2002
About Our Family Research
I am researching the FEB family from Germany. My Great-Grandfather Herman Feb was born in Germany in 1862 (reportedly Berlin). He and his brother Charles Isadore Feb traveled to the United States cir 1880-1890. Their name was reportedly changed to FEB after arrival in the U.S. I am attempting to identify the original name. Their father's name was Max "_______" who married Emilia Scholan in Germany. Herman married Louisa Dornseif who was born in Illinois. They had six children Clara, Harry, Olga, Alma, Elmer (my grandfather), and Irving.
Some of the Feb's settled in Missouri (St Louis). I have located many family members across the United States and hope one day to initiate a family reunion.
I am also interested in other branches of our family. In particular Woodruff, Dornseif, Tetzlaff, Scholan, Inman, Brundage.
Any information about these surnames, and in particular the FEB family, would be greatly appreciated.
