Re: OBAMA BERKHIMER ANCESTRY
So very interested in learning more...I have John Wilhelm as the immigrant, wife, Maria Salome, son Veltin (Valentine Sr) Magdalene Louise, daughter, Johan George, son and Leonard, son...came over in 1732 from Germany...
I have several Valentines' back in my family (about every other generation) ending with my grand father Valentine.
Various spellings, Bergheimer, Berckheimer, Berkheimer, Barkhimer
Trying to find father of John Wilhelm and where exactly he came from in Germany and earlier ancestors....but need proof as so much is out there that is wrong or just copied from tree to tree...
