Jan Hagen My real but not my biological father.
About 15 years ago or mabey a little longer I asked my mother to write down the family of our father we never had contact with, since they devorced. My mother had some CVA's already then, so I thought there would be some mistakes in what she wrote down. So far, all is correct what she wrote down then, besides some name spellings. That leaflet made me type several variations of my grandfather's name in my browser once or twice a year, and after about five years I found my grandfathers birth- and deathdate....... That s how this started.
Ancestors of Schellenberger-150

Living on a Palace of a Houseboat at the Lake of Aalsmeer we had build 10 years ago. What more is there to wish in this world. :D

I live with my parents all my life and even now I live in apartment attached to their house so I know what going on in their life and health wise even. So I see them going down hill all the time because I am with them all the time. That is till they move up and get a house built in Greeneville near my sister which I am going to live in their old house on their property which is 10 acres and they live in a new house built for them. So this WikiTree and genealogy is an escape goat and relaxing for me to get through the day. Thank your for all the help on the source a thon. If Summers not going be the leader anymore I will be happy to or even assist her if she does. Next year I might be better at it and have more time to do it. Your are a wonderful WikiTreer. Again thanks for all the help I did need it.

How do you think I am doing on the source a thon and as the Team Tennessee Leader. I am finally on I had company from 8:00 last night which was my sister, brother and sister in law. My sister in law and brother when there is a home came for University of Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday the planning to come down to visit with my dad which is in about mid stage of Demetia which my dad has vascular demetia which will be about Stage 5 or 6 which there are 7 stages and he has very few good days anymore. He getting very unhappy with the switch of days and time that he had for kidney dialysis he was during in Lenoir City, Tennessee and so we are going to try one in Sweetwater, Tennessee. Also fell Monday out in the yard and we are having problems getting him up out of chairs now. He is 85 years old. So my brother in law and sister are talking we a group of builders of house near where the live in Greeneville, TN to see if they could build my parents a house that they want and then I will live in my sisters old house on their 10 acre lot. There is a kidney dialysis clinic near their house and near where they are hoping for my parents house that they will get built. So all of them left as of 4:30. Sometime later tonight I have a second cousin and his live in girlfriend from Florida is coming by for a visit tonight. So I am in until the come and leave then I will be back. Sorry I so late in getting in.

I am in for Sunday till about 11;00 a.m. till 8:00 p.m. on Monday and I will finish up on Monday at 11:00 p.m..

Thanks teammates and Bea for stepping in for me on Friday night until about when I stepped in I appreciated very much real life does through you curveballs and give you also surprises too. I knew that my brother and sister in law was coming back like the will every weekend that the Tennessee Volunteers football season. They have season tickets for the home games so the will be down here to see my dad because of his problems until we move. But my sister on Thursday night called and said she was coming down to spend the night so she didn't leave until 4:30 p.m. and I didn't know about my second cousin coming because I was walking yesterday morning with my sister in law and when we got back mom told me they called and was coming by for a visit so they didn't get here until 6:30p.m. and didn't leave until 8:30 p.m. So that was a surprise also. How am I doing as a leader with all this interpreations.

A new comment by Brown-8212 has been added after your comment on WikiTree G2G:

It sounds like Summer is sitting this one out, so I can put you down as team leader, Stacy. Some of the things leaders do are listed on the Source-a-Thon team page:



The discussion is following:

I would like to participate with Team Tennessee.

We would like for you to participate with Team Tennessee you make the 3rd person to join us and do you know that we do not have a leader.

commented Sep 10 by Linda Barnett G2G6 Mach 8

Thank you! I am honored-- I am a first timer at this. So what does a leader do?

commented Sep 10 by Stacy Krout G2G Crew

Great, Stacy!

You're bib #216, and I will put you down for Team Tennessee. Summer Orman may be leading it (she's led it in the past), but I am sure she'd love a hand either way.

Hey Astrid,

Ik heb me ook weer voor de Source-a-Thon van dit jaar aangemeld hoor. Hopelijk kan ik dan net zo actief zijn als afgelopen jaar met de Source-a-Thon. De mooie maanden van het jaar kom ik er niet echt aan toe met onze mini boerderij, groente en verbouwing. En hier in Hongarije hebben we nogal wat mooie maanden gedurende het jaar, maar vaak is oktober al wat somberder, dus lekker weer beginnen (nu dus ook al :p ).

Zodra mn nummer bekend is horen jullie het wel!

Groetjes Joan
