  2. Find other Rodewalds on FamilySearch.org and Find A Grave, add them to WikiTree, reconstruct pedigree or find where they fit in existing families
  3. Find any historical newspaper references to any Rodewald in the United States
  4. Find any histories of the Rodewald family, whether books, previous personal research, or other written materials. Use these to compare against primary records.
