Followed Tags
Laura is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I have an adopted person in my family and I am currently working with another adopted person to try to trace her biological family as our DNA converges. If I can help someone find a lead to their biological family I would be thrilled.
Changing to the new tag name. I like checking my entries and fixing things that need fixing at least once a week. I also scan the error database to see if any names link in with my lines.
Have taken autosomal test with FTDNA and have data uploaded to GedMatch
I descend from French glass and crystal makers
I descend from French glass and crystal makers
I am about 50% German via paper genealogy. Both sides of my Mom's family were German and in my Dad's Mom's family his maternal Grandfather and Grandmother were immigrants from Germany.
I have multiple lines with German areas represented in my ancestry. Surnames include Woerner, Reiss, Manger, Bauer, Koenig, Pfeiffer, Schniederalbers, Neihoff, Schulte, Eufinger, Rucker, Gebhardt, Werner, Voelkening, Hartung among others.
I belong to a large international organization dedicated to preserving the history of glass / crystal makers and their craft. Genealogy is a big part of our mission. I am happy to volunteer to check into any glass making related genealogy. I have over 10,000 people in this part of my gedcom alone.
I love history and have a library full of it.
I am currently doing puzzles for Weekend chat and am doing other things Integrators do
Sometimes legends and history collide. Am interested when there may be historical backup to legends
One Name study, for this surname and its variants.
I have pre-1500 certification
I have pre-1700 certification
I am 25% Scottish mainly from Aberdeenshire area. Surnames include Penny, Kerr, Robertson, Mackie, Copland, Cheyne, Haddon, Henderson, Farquarh, and others.
I have several surnames related to clan names like Robertson, Henderson, Kerr and others.
I have found links to profiles with no owners in other venues and that is frustrating. I would look for names that intertwine with my surnames for any that need a home... Also having a real adopted person in our family I like helping those who are looking for family and have no clues or links to help them.
My Great Great Grandfather Gottfried Gebhardt served in Company D of the 2nd Regiment MO Infantry USRC. My other Great Great Grandfather Fred Walter served in the MO Home Guard in St Louis.
I love the chat, great way to meet people on the site. Lots of fun!

Laura, Daniel Elleker mentioned in his bio that he had an ancestor who, according to an 1852 census, was a "China and Glass dealer." Would that occupation have fallen within the scope of your glassmaking experience or were merchants of that time specialized enough to sell only? Sorry, it caught my eye before coffee had time to install brain to mouth/typing filters. LOL
