The Harry F. Wellhausen Family , Chicago, Illinois Updated April 2, 2002
About Our Family Research
The Wellhausen Family which now has its primary origin in Chicago, Cook, Illinois, originated in the area of Berlin Germany. Details regarding "ancestors past" are vague and sparse due to a lack of family closeness over the years. We have no records of past family stories or heritage. I do know the trail towards America started abt. 1878, streaming thru Missouri in the 1890's where "Louis" worked as a slater. Information on this tree dated before 1900 was obtained through state records. To my knowledge all is exact and true. As for the "Wellhausen's of today", we are commited to keeping our family strong and close. All source data is welcome and can be contributed through message boards.
