I've just discovered an entire association working on this family in Canada, but they don't have my husband's branch as they migrated from Quebec to Kankakee County, Illinois and then to Indiana and then Kansas. I'm particularly working on Pascal Choquette (1841-1884) & his wife Patience Prudence Benoit (abt 1844-1892) and connection and migration from Quebec to Kansas and their descendants
I've done a lot of work on a community tree for this area covering about 1600-1850 as I have ancestors in the Metz, Wingerter, Winstel, Dudenhoeffer, Weigel, Ducar, Baron & Eichenlaub families. Would love to collaborate with others on getting this data up and properly connected with sources
I'm stuck on going back at George Nicolaus Schech (1817, somewhere in Bavaria-aft 1875, Louisiana) left Breman, Germany 19 Aug 1849, arrived NY 29 Oct 1849, filed declaration of intent to naturalize, Cincinnati, Ohio, 17 Sep 1852, naturalized, 24 Aug 1865, 6th Jud. Dist. Ct. St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana
Congratulations Mary on becoming one of the newest Blue Badged "Generous Genealogist" which will go along well with your red badge!! Thank you for all you do helping others. Now that's the way to WikiTree! You are truly a Super Star!
The third type of category is a personal faith category. This type of category has no subcategories and is placed on the profiles of people who followed the faith when you don't know what congregations they belonged to. We have Category: United Brethren, Moravian which looks like it has been used for this purpose. The name of that category looks a little odd to me, and I will need your help in deciding whether it should be left alone or changed to either just Moravian or United Brethan or maybe Moravian United Brethren.
I think Category: Moravian United Brethren looks right to me.
Congrats on being Member of the Week, Mary. It might interest you to know that while you and I have no connections and are not closely related, your husband and my husband are 8th cousins once removed - due to their french canadian ancestry!! Cheers. Robynne
