I am researching the "Ziemendorf" family lines. Originally they were from Germany, but many settled in WI beginning in the late 1700's and early 1800's. I havew many names, dates, locations, but a great deal of missing information as well. This is a project that I have pursued off and on for years, and was just beginning to make some small steps in progress, when I went through aa divorce and lost access to a computer and tons of other information. I am just beginning to pick up this search again and am hoping that I can continue where I had left off and that I can continue to make progress.
I am specifically looking for decendants of Peter Ziemendorf. They would be, the 1st generation accorrding to some of the info I have. They were born in Germany, and eventually came to WI. Peter had 4 children: Charlotte, Karl, Wilhelm, and Friedrich. Peter was supposedly married to a "Sophie", but that would be all the info there. Out of their children, the only info I have, or clues, is that their child Friedrich was born in Jan. 1825 in Prussia, Germany. He died living in Milwaukee, WI in 1900. He also lived in Waukeaha Co. in 1870.
After this period I do have alot more info and leads on the generations to follow...this is a stumbling block here.
I am a novice at this and would greatly appreciate and leads and inspiration to get me bacvk into this search. Please respond to my email address if there are any questions, news that you may think is appropriate to share, or any suggestions, leads, or any other helpful information.
