Hello! I would like to introduce myself to the members or the german_roots project and others with interest and ancestry in Germanic heritage.
I've tagged numerous of my records with the german roots project tag but it will be a while before I can get to most of them.
My ancestors origins and surnames follow. The various different geographic lines came together in Buffalo, NY area in mid to late 1800s.
My Schnegggenburger (also and earlier Schneckenburger and Schnekenburger) are from Aixheim (Wuertemberg). In this line are connected Efinger, Schneider, Zopp, Frey, Bader.
My Schneggenburger ancestor married in Buffalo (he followed his brother there, as well as an uncle and three aunts). He was a master wood carver.
He married Ottilia Uschold. I understand them to be from Bavaria, but until now I have mostly relied on the research of a cousin for the Bavarian line.
I focused more upon the gaps in the American German side of that line - My Lorenz Uschold married a Mary Granacher (born in Buffalo). Her father, a Lorenz Granacher was likely from Waldshut (Baden). His mother's maiden name is Muehlhaupt.
Mary Daniel was Lorenz Granacher's first (of three) wife (they met in Buffalo). He was in furniture manufacture and owned a reputable furniture store. I understand there to be numerous Daniel's who came together with Ordener's and Nussbaums from the Frankreich - specifically Lothringen for my line - in the Creutzwald. The Daniel/Ordener line is well researched by other genealogists though now much of the material and interpretation is Francaphone.
I've got a lot of material accumulated in my database on Aixheim families especially Schneggenburger and Effinger and their descendants. I'd like to do a one place study for Aixheim at some point.
I need help on the line from Waldshut. I'd like to advance and secure that line further.
I've created pages for one_name_studies for Schneggenburger and Uschold, and a Family Mysteries page for Schneggenburger.
I look forward to collaborating with all of you.
