Hugo Ernestus Krebs Families
Alrighty folks, family and potential family:
I am in the middle of updating and modernizing the information in our Tree.The last typed update was sometime in the '70s and I have been hand-writing new information on the "old" copy as I get it.
There have been several marriages, births and a few deaths since it was last worked on.So, I am interviewing my "branches" and getting it all together, as well as getting pictures, stories and supporting documents to add to my project and eventually a website and possibly a book of some sort will be published to show it all off.
I am kind of stuck on one point and if anyone can help, please do.In my research of Hugo's father, Johann, I have pretty much hit a brick wall in that I can not find much data about him, other than birth date & place and spouse demographics.If someone speaks and understands German well and is able to translate German sites or is able to come-up with any data on Johann, please share.
Johann Tobias (father) and Johann Ludwig (son) Krebs have been ruled out as being part of Hugo's immediate family.They may be cousins, but I have not found any links between the 2 Krebs families.Johann Ludwig's descendants settled in Pennsylvania and were Lutherans as opposed to Hugo and his descendants in Mississippi and were Catholics.
Happy hunting and best wishes to all.This project is fun and sometimes a preoccupation, but I'm committed to it.
