thanks for the welcome, hope I don’t screw this up too much. The family tree data I have in my possession is a bit confusing and there are huge gaps. I will fill in what I can when I can.

Hi, and thank you... I only stopped by your site the other day looking for specific info on Judge Meece's distant relatives, they're cousins of mine but don't keep in touch very well - anyway I was suprised at the lack of data about that 'arm' of the family. I wasn't looking to participate heavily on the site, I've got a billion things to do and just retired last year. Anyway I've been a great fan of genealogy for a long time and always collected any verifiable info I could from other relatives, thinking to put it together sometime but never had the time. The info is dear to me so I don't want to lose it; I will be struggling to find the time to get it done. If another relative is currently maintaining the tree I was hoping to collaborate a little with them. Running out of space here- s

Hello Karen, thank you for your greeting. I will need a lot of help to find the Ancestors of my husband. I am searching for a man named August Spiller and his wife Rosina, born Holitschka, about year 1800. I am grateful for any help. They lived in Silicia, Germany.
