The families from Harmstorf, especially Meyer are important to me because of the Steinhauer and Reinecke family in Sueschendorf and Oldendorf bei Nahrendorf and the Goehrde. I am always remembering the Genzel tree which had Meyer from Harmstorf and Walmsburg.
So that's it for the day, minus editing I do a lot. I have been searching all the little villages on the AIDA emigration site. So you know now, there is more to come.
Just me Jo.

http://genealogyofoldendorfundnahrendorf.blogspot.com/2008/10/name-wolters-from-oldendorf.htmlThe FABEL [s] are on my church records. So for that reason, I will spend a little time of these, who were with the tree of those whom resided at Sauck county, Wisconsin. Reedsburg one of the earliest settled areas in Wisconsin.
It was so close to Chicago, Iowa, and Missouri.
Today, I am primarily concerned with the Paul Behmke and his wife Holly's tree mostly the Fabels from Uelzen. It's because I found the ties of my RATZMANN to their RATZMAN. For further information I have used the book Die Familien und Einwhoner des Kirchspiels Himbergen.
At Ancestry Her ID number: I14789
Name: Catharine Margarethe FABELS
Given Name: Catharine Margarethe

b: 21 OCT 1777 in Oetzendorf, Hanover, Prussia, Germany
I posted this with the fathers name under Post-ems on their page at rootsweb world connect see sources. I separated everything so nicely, and then it all jumbled together again.
From book pp.112 second column.

I Can keep going, so ask if you would like more on these families..
Note: Also anyone from Suttorf there is high probability they also were at Oldendorf/Nahrendorf, Dubbekold,Suschendorf,Dannenberg Any book by Heinrich Porth and Gunda Friesch. is worth the peek. Hch. Porth has the book about Ebstorf and another one which may cover Bevensen. They will give more details also. Behn[eke] also from Ostheide area. That which includes Suttorf. I have been reading a german book about it and have seen the name. Naturally, I have only covered the surface .
1. I highlighted the family from Breese. You may or may not know that our Seil and Heins family lived at Breese. And the Graf Grote's wife lived in that area too. Some of the Seil went into the Himbergen area as well. I don't know if the two different Seil families connect. I suspect that they really did.
2. There is an on going interest on my part with the location of Meyer fromTorwe since I acquired some information on the Genzel tree. This is not the first time you will hear about it. [smile]
Source: World Connect at rootsweb under Gilbert Walter Meyer tree/ Holly.
Note: In the book any spelling falls under one spelling that of Meyer. I unfortunately have a few Meier / Meyer pages missing. So I have to rely on posting I did a few years ago.
Note: There is more indepth record numbers from church documents. Soon I will post that as well.
Please check back soon for more on the areas.

A new site for Me to share --- Lowlands-L: Things They Left Us: Folk traditions of the Lowlands worldwide
Lowlands-L: Things They Left Us: Folk traditions of the Lowlands worldwide: "Hamburg was now an arrondisement within the Département des Bouches de l’Elbe, while an alliance of mostly German, Russian and Swedish troops besieged the city. Hamburg families were required to provide free lodging to Napoléon’s soldiers. Houses were torn down to create shooting ranges, and their inhabitants were sent packing. Turned into horse stables were the main churches of this mostly Lutheran city that had provided refuge to thousands of Dutch and French Protestants. In their desperation, many people fled to then neighboring Danish territory, in many cases just a short walk away. Others engaged in cross-border smuggling to make up for lost trade with Britain and other parts hostile to France."
As I read before in Tosterglope.de or in account of Charlotte Wodage about the region of Dahlenburg; the French, or Russians, or swedes being there took over the churches and lodged their horses there. How could people even think to do so. Perhaps the French were in majority catholic. Perhaps the degradation was political in thought. No matter it was a Horrid thing to do.
Even during the thirty year plus years of war in this region each time troops were there the villages suffered They lost a fourth of what they had before. Villages were burned, women raped, animals lost. And think of the rumble and rubble after the world wars. It is a wonder our ancestors persevered. They rebuilt, fixed things up.
Thank goodness they did, right.
But somethings can never be restored or brought back.
I cry over the lost documents we can not ever see. Some stories and events will be lost. If you read about the pages or years of documents lost in church records you will know what I mean.
Title-- Criticisms of the Roman Catholic Church. This Link contains an article on why Huguenots attacked and destroyed churches.
More reading sources.

I wish to learn everything that I possibly can. Always Digging into genealogy. Then with that knowledge, I hope to share it, explain it through blogging to the best of my abilities, meager though it may be.
And I suppose there will be a few other tidbits added here and there. [ yes I am smiling] As I said in my profile, if you publish your family history, they will come. and it is true.
Today, I noticed a comment that I thought was old. And then today, I figured out how to get them to show up where they are suppose to be visible!!! To get to my point now, someone has commented that he actually knows of our Luhmann family from Eichdorf Germany. He says a Luhman family member does look like Grandfather Herman Meyer! Oohhh! Pop the cork!
Hooray! It's these things that makes me so happy. I am going to contact him in a moment. I hope he can share much with us. You can see his comment further in older posts.
Have faith fellow researchers and genealogy bloggers, publish it and they will come!
Don't slack in checking your edit pages, as I did. Don't be guilty of sliding in blog posts, as I was. In other words --Don't let the moss grow on your shoes!
I won't do a happy dance cause my feet hurt!
And [ big smile] it's keeping me from digging in the garden as well. but on the positive side, I economize my feet standing time, by blogging. I Love it.
just me jo

I hope to persuade him to write a little about his family. He promised a snapshot of this first named Thomas of the MEYER family. At least as far as I know, he is the first.
A year or so ago, Mitchell married LILA PATCHES. Together they had the little Patches. [He is a Meyer, but for some reason, I like calling him Patches!]
Like all new parents, the loving sleep deprived father had this to say about Thomas :
lot like a Meyer.
Mitchell and his oldest brother resemble each other alot. I'think the little fella looks so hugable and just might have gotten a few.
If some of you have followed my blogs, you may know I have mentioned Mitchel as the one who closely resembles some our ancestors more than any other child I have seen. Mitchel[l] did resemble Dwight early in his age. He was very fondly looked on by Dwight R. Meyer, who was his Minnesota grandfather out at Sunnyslope farm. Mitchel was a very accepting, loving little last born boy of Steve's family. He did not mind at all being held on your lap. It was not easily forgotten BY ME how friendly of a little tyke he was.
I gave Mitchell the address of my blogs, because I figured that at his new status as a father he may be experiencing that often new parents need to compare our child to our ancestors baby pictures. The best I could offer on my blogs was not baby pictures of his grandfather, but photos of a young aged Dwight and Lyle, and Mitchel's great grandfather, Herman with his siblings. And of course with time spent there, he will see the other genes in relation to our past.
Heins, Heinz, Henke, Luhmann, Gehrke, Reinecke, Seil, Korn and many others, who blended in with their genes into the pool.
Hopefully the new little Meyer will learn of his ancestors as his father gains a somewhat understanding of my always not so clear blogs. [tee hee they are to me, though]
Maybe, if we' re lucky he and Lila will comment now and then.
~~ Congratulations Mitchell and Lila !

From Blog--Applestone Cottage:
"The town's people built this home for Grant and his wife after the war for
2,500 dollars. The state of Illinois was deeded this from the Grant family and
the city of Galena." She says population is about 4,000.
Note: The sign said 1860 on one of her pictures. The war was over a few years before Fred came to America. After 1865 or so. Hmm, I wonder if Mr. Ahrens or Mollemann were in the war.
Note: There has been mention of a connection with a Grant family, somehow??? Anyone in the know?

August W. Seil
1---Annie Seil, granddaughter of August William SEIL from Dahlenburg and Uelzen. [ She was also a Child of Lizzie Seil Jaeschke]
It's time to discuss further the SEIL family from Dahlenburg and Oldendorf, bei Nahrendorf.
Besides the SEIL from Dahlenburg, many other Seil names and locations have appeared in documents. Already at one point or another I have mentioned the familien namen Seil from other locations:
11--Heinrich Seil geb. ab. 1859 bei Oldendorf.
[ oo - Mary Ahrens from Bleckede] Below here is a son Carl Seil on our left. Carl Seil and Dwight were fishing friends. Carl came up from Iowa to fish at the southern Minnesota lakes with Dwight.
Evidently a card received at Sunnyslope Farm in Watowan county one christmas from Carl Seil's family.
111- Juergen Friedrich Seil a farmhand from Lueben oo 30.04.1822 Catharina Maria Luhmann marriage at Eichdorf / Nahrendorf. [Hers -*1794- +1848]
lV-- The Juergen Christoph Heinrich Seil of Breese oo 16.11.1810 Margaretha Magdalena Luhmann marriage at Eichdorf / Nahrendorf [ Hers - *1791 -]
V--- Marg. Dor. [neeSeil] Meyer. Her name came to me from the church. Here is a portion of my past post where she is mentioned. " This was the most important question to ask. It was the god parent of our Juergen Heinrich Friedrich Meyer geb.1851. Who was he. The brief explanation did not help much to supply meaning to any reading between the lines.Juergen Friedrich Meyer, schulze of Oldendorf oo- md 18. april.1834 with Margaretha Dorothea (Bausch) Schroeder widow of Juergen Heinrich Schroeder of Oldendorf. Juergen Friedrich Meyer's parents were Hauswirth Johann Heinrich Meyer of Sueschendorf and his wife Marg. Dor. Seil."
Not much more here
1---- Annie Seil [00 marriage in Iowa/ Minnesota - 1909] with Herman Meyer >
1---Lizzie Seil [Dahlenburg and Uelzen > Hildesheim connection of her mothers forefathers familiennamen KORN] > her father - August Friedrich Wilhelm Seil of Dahlenburg
More will follow shortly. I would like to spend more time on August Friedrich Wilhelm Seil of Dahlenburg. Family names of Brookmann, Schmidt, [Korn, Culemann, Lietz, Hofmann from Himbergen Uelzen].
