Heinrich Friedrich Herman Meyer Birthday Date - 27.April

This is not a biography nor a memorial to my grandfather Meyer. I am just sorry to say I did not mention Grandpa Meyer's birthday date just a couple of days ago. I should have, shouldn't I. He was born 27. april.1881 in an Oldendorf hof owned by his father, i. d. Goehrde babtized at Nahrendorf kirche. He died just before his last birthday could occur.


Note: I am still trying to find the exact house number or location of the Meyer home in Oldendorf, Nahrendorf.

Genealogy Blogging is Working Results For Me.

On my other Genealogie blog A rootdigger I mention that my dream and aim is to find my ancestors descendants in Wendland Germany and u.s.a.

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.

Another Meyer Increases The Population With His Birth.

It is wonderful news, is it not? I recently ran across Mitchell Meyer,
who is the son of Steve and Mary Meyer in southern Minnesota. Mitchel [l] net works out of my occasional stomping ground of my past youth - Sioux Falls. I had to see, if he was the relation by browsing his profile. I couldn't be sure until we were in touch with each other. With a few pictures, I had him persuaded that I was indeed his relative.


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 :

He has had a little baby boy, who was born on ... friday the
13th,...... at 1:50 AM 8 pounds 2 ounces 19 1/2 inches long and looks a

lot like a Meyer. Bold

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 !
