Followed Tags
Jo is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
This my father's surname. I only know his father and grandfather's names and little else. My Grandpa Bert played baseball for the Cleveland Naps in 1914. UPDATE: I now have enough of a trail on the Brenner side that takes us back to the Swiss migration of Brenner's to Lancaster, PA and the birth of Mennonite beliefs and practices in the US.
This my paternal grandmother. I only go back as far as her grandfather. She was a crooner-style singer. That's all I know as she died before my first birthday. UPDATE: I am a descendant of Enoch Stearns. There is a giant roadblock as to who his father is. Anyone with information on Enoch please contact me!
On the ship's manifest our surname was listed as Wedekind. I know I have family in southern Minnesota and I would love to connect with descendants of Fritz Wedeking. He married Sophia Wilhemina Hahn somewhere in Germany about 1870s.
I have quite a bit more information for my great grandmother Minnie Wilson, who came from Vyborg, Denmark. Her youngest brother Viggo never came to America and though I made initial contact with that family I have since lost that connection and would very much like them back. UPDATE: I have reconnected with the Nielsen's in Denmark!

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person and that means we share ancestors and work together as a BIG collaborative team!

What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree?

When you confirm your email address, you’ll be given an opportunity to volunteer to help document our collective family history. Use the Tags and comments to tell us about your genealogical interests.

When you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership.

Happy Hunting,
