Thank you Margaret, for even noticing Augustine Herman. He must have been an interesting man..

Augustine was Bohemian, lived in America after emigrating in New York and Maryland area before there were states.. He was an entrepreneur, great maps.

Margaret, do you speak any Czech or other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | cs-3 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively and advanced Czech, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-1 for basic Russian, etc. It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree!

Margaret you're quite welcome. Happy to help.

I found more records for this family. I found Josef's parents as well as Josephs's siblings. I think I found the record for Ignatz. I'm still trying to read it. lol! Do you want me to create the profiles and add you as manager or do you want to create them? I believe Josef's parents are Jan and Marie. I added the link to the digital image if you want to look at it.

Hi Margaret, I spent some time today studying up on the Stearns family and Westford. I was able to find plenty of records showing that some of Peters children used the name Sterns without an a, most noted was Harry K. Stearns/Sterns. I found where he acquired the "family farm". I also found a couple of old maps that show where H.K. Sterns was living, he might have moved at least once within the town.

I'll figure it out and keep in touch with you!

Hi Margaret.... I'll see if I can find that farm for you!

If we can find it, I'll drive on over and take some pictures and videos for you.

It will probably take me a couple of days to get back to you, but don't think I won't!

Hi Margaret,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
