About Our Family Research

I didn't know what else to title this page, because there are a few different branches to my family tree that I have been trying to research. The main surnames that I have been researching are Neidermeyer, Spachtholz, McLaughlin, Helmantoler, Jenkins, and Crocci. I was able to find alot of information on some of these branches, but others I have come to a dead end for now. If anyone has any information about any of the persons mentioned or pictured on this page, please contact me. Also, if anyone wishes to know more information about these individuals, please contact me.
