My German Ancestry ~ A Research Endeavor
"My German Ancestry" is a web site that I have recently uploaded onto the Internet and have attached it in the 'Related Links' on our Family Tree Maker web site at the following URL:
While the web page may always be accessed by that method, the direct URL for the page is:
It is only a beginning, but my hope is that people will find this page and read through the surnames on the 'Surname' page within that web site.
There are sixty-five German surnames listed on the 'Surname' page and all but one surname is hyperlinked to the reports on our Family Tree Maker web site.
There are two special tribute pages at the top of every page on the web site.
One is entitled:
"An Immigrant Always Dreams", a tribute to my Great, Great Grandfather, Dr. Jacob Schaefer.
The other page is entitled:
"My Oldest German Line", a tribute to the surname 'Mingus'. On that page there is a link to another web page of mine entitled, "The American Civil War". There is a Mingus Civil War Roster, which has some very interesting variations of how the Mingus name has been transcribed through the years.
It is my hope that if you find any surname that you are researching that you will contact me. I am always open to sharing information. I hope you feel the same way.
