Hello, I'm interested in the Braley tree that runs from Sarah Braley, up through Roger Braley, and beyond.
Following Data_Doctors in G2G to stay informed.
I'm hoping to learn more about the family of my great-grandfather, Josef Peter Geller, who was born in Köln, Germany in 1852, and collaborate with others researching Gellers in that area
I have maternal great-grandparents named Geller and Weissfuss, born in Köln and Posen. My paternal Yager ancestors, born in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Ontario, seem to have pre-Revolutionary roots in Hessen and Rheinland-Pfalz. I'm interested in collaborating with others interested in any of these names.
My maternal grandfather was an Ashkenazi Jew, whose family changed their name from Rosofsky to Rose when they came to the US from Vilna. His father was born in Minsk. I'm interested in collaborating with others who are interested in the Rosofsky name.
I'm interested in learning more about Prussia. Some of my ancestors who self-identified as German were born in the Grand Duchy of Posen or the Province of Posen in the 1800s.
I'm researching the 19th century Sicilian roots of a Rizzo family that came to the USA from Campobello Di Licata in the early 20th century. Have found possible documentation for a few generations, but having difficulty determining if these are the same family, or other Rizzos.
My grandfather's surname Rosofsky was changed to Rose when the family came to the US from Vilna. His father was born in Minsk. I'm interested in collaborating with others researching Rosofskys.
I have Rutherford ancestors who emigrated from Berwickshire, Scotland to Canada West (now Ontario), around 1848, and then to Michigan a decade or two later. I'm interested in learning more about my Rutherford roots and linking up with other Rutherfords.
My great-grandmother's birth surname was Weissfuss, born in Posen. I'm interested in collaborating with others researching the Weissfuss family.
I'm interested in collaborating with others regarding the Yager family of Michigan and Ontario.
Yager and Yeager spellings were both found within the same family, varying from generation to generation and even among siblings.

My Yager line starts with my 3rd Great Grandmother, Juliet Carter (Yager) Houston, Yager-635. And I feel your pain on all the different spellings, it took a WHILE, but I changed all mine to Yager. This line goes back to the 1st German colony in the states, in 1717, with Nicholas Yager.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for alerting us to the problem with the Hollingsworth-1401 profile. That was my fault (a bad paste while adding the project box) and I have fixed it.

Thanks again,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz.

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects coordinating them is essential. Please ensure location data matches date of profile and avoid abbreviations. Citations & links for sources enable verification of data please add from wiki ID go to Research to find sources

The Italian Roots would be of interest. Adding the tag Italian_Roots will help you get updates about the project.

Explore Pre-1700 Projects to find one that fits your research focus, whether time period, location or topic. Read the goals & tasks of the project join if it fist.

Any questions please ask

K, do you happen to speak any other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | ro-2 | he-1 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively, intermediate Rumanian and basic Hebrew, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-2 for intermediate Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If there is a language you speak that is missing from our categories, I would be happy to add it. If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:

{{ Languages | en }}

I'm missing records and even the name of my Jewish GF -paternal. See Hilse-40 to clarify.

I also established the Jewish Roots Project.

To inform you better: unless you leave your tree open, no one on Wikitree can collaborate with you or give improvements for sources, for example.

We are in general a happy group of collaborators, true.

I'd like to be added to your Trusted list, just to see if we have similar persons listed. .
