Re: Westerheide family in Ohio
I have been in contact with Lois Lynch re:Westerheide Genealogy.She told me that a lot of what is in her gedcom file came originally from you.
I am a former student and long-time friend of Sr. Mary Anne Westerheide.She is now retired and living at the Motherhouse in Dayton.We went to lunch about 10 days ago and I was sharing pictures of my recent trip to Germany to Holdorf, Germany, the ancestral home of my g-grandfather.She remarked on the similarity of the names.His name was von der Heide.We've always suspected that the Westerheides had to come from a nearby location.
She was fascinated by the pictures and made me wonder what I could discover about her family.Lois Lynch's gedcom answered many of my questions.
I plan to print it up for Mary Anne.Once before I spoke with Fr. David Hoying and may try to get in touch with him again.
I was wondering what your connection to the family is?
