|My family research is twofold - My father's family all originated in Meckleburg-Schwerin and from there went to Grey County, Ontario, Canada. North American family lines are Weirmeir/Weirmier and Mauer. My mother's direct line originated in Hastings County, Ontario, Canada, and intermarried with families with origins in the American Colonies, being mostly of United Empire Loyalist families. Family lines are Robbins, Keller/Keller, Reed/Reid, Parks/Parke, and Badgley.|
My wife's ancestral lines in Canada are in Peterborough County and came from England and Ireland.These lines are Hurl, Edwards, Dunk, Blanco and Curtain.
The majority of my research is in Hastings County where I have been building a file with all families associated with my ancestral lines including branches which have gone to the United States of America. The Wiermeier family research was done by using Latter Day Saints Family Research centers and the microfilms of Mecklenberg-Schwerin churches in conjunction with a book that I produced with the help of all other living family branches.
My father, Herman Frederick Weirmeir went to Western Canada from Grey County, Ontario to look for greener pastures. There he met my mother, Edith Elizabeth Robbins who had gone west with her father from The Bancroft, Ontario area. Later both my parents and my mother's family returned to Ontario to the Bancroft area.
I have intentionally included only information up to deceased generations thus avoiding disclosing information on living individuals. More information is available on later generations to those persons qualified to receive such information. I will be adding information on deceased individuals as it becomes available and on other branches. Check back for updates.
