To all Ohmart/Ohmert researchers
Hello, some of you may know me thru correspondence......I am Neal Ohmert, son of Elmer Ohmert, son of George R.Ohmert, son of Ezra Alonzo Ohmert, son of Jacob Ohmart (2), son of Jacob Ohmart (1), son of Christian Ohmart, son of Johannes Ommert who, if the information is correct , is the son of Simon Ommert of Oberkalbach, Germany.
I see there are no posts on this site yet. I have seen the Ancestry.com post site but thought I read you have to suscribe to post messages there. I am currently involved in doing more research on my Ohmert/Ohmart lines and other lines Lash, Zimmerman and Bethel. I am interested in hearing from anyone who wants to trade information on Ohmarts. I would like to hear theories on why some Ohmarts ended up exchanging an "E" for an "A" to make OHMERT.Its funny, but Ohmart is easier to pronounce and many times I use that pronouciation as it rolls off the tongue easier.
My first cousin (once removed) Harold Ohmert of Bonham, Texas is trying to contact Otto Ohmart. Does anyone have a current address and phone for him?I will be updating my Ohmert line to the genealogy.com sight soon, and would be glad to share all info I have. I have found Jesse Ohmart's grave in Boulder, Colorado and have a date of death for his wife Elizabeth Ohmart, both of which are in all or most Ohmart family tree postings. Incidently, Jesse Ohmart's grave is spelled OHMERT, which just goes to show some changed the spelling and some didn't. If you check his brother Joel's grave in Indiana, it is probably spelled OHMART.
I also will be sending out information to Billy D. K. Ohmart and Teri Pettit to update trees now that I have a good computer!Chat with you later, Neal.
