Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
The Claussen/Lightfeldt family after coming from Germany settled around the Chicago area and then went to Duluth Minnesota, and finally to California. The Lyons family was in Grant County Wisconson, Iowa, Minnesota and finally California.
I would appreciate any and all help tracking these families, I am new at geneology and find it very hard learn how, when, and why, in this search.
