Re: Newark NJ Dassings
Sorry for not replying sooner, but our computer seemed to have lost some e-mails for a number of days and I only got this today!
Really cool to hear that this is another family branch!Please pass along any info that your dad might happen to know about family history- this would be interesting not only to me but also to a lot of my family who have been "cut off" from the main branch of the Dassings for almost 80 years!
It would be really great to get your family information plugged into what I already have.I use a Mac compatible shareware program to organize the information as I get it, but it's not really something I can e-mail you as a separate file, since you need the whole program to run.If you would like, I could snail-mail you a copy of the Dassing family history such as it is, if you would consent to send me information on important dates from your side of the family.That way, I could put all the information together in the fiile!I am sort of the family historian and this is the sort of info I love to get!
The fact that you also don't know very much about the other Dassings makes me wonder if the whole family just splintered?
FYI- I live in Columbus, Ohio, am 32, married and have one daughter (expecting another baby in the spring).As far as I can figure, you and I are third cousins, or something very near to that!
