I have put together all that I can find from Family records and family histories and gone through many searches on the WFT. Now I need help! My German roots are Lange, Schmidt, & Meyer. You wouldn't believe how many leads I have, few probably good and most just somebody with the same name. I hope that somebody out there recognizes some of them and can help tie them together.
On the other hand I have Swedish and Norwegion roots of Bergdahl, Fernlund, Nyhus, Nordgaarden, & Norstebon that apparently nobody ever heard of and they are all ???son or ???dotter when they get back to the old country.
