Your ancestors just stayed in their villages.


I say it's Baloney!
Now if you are a an dedicated genealogist searching for family history like I am, you know by now that title is a bunch of malarkey. I am going to prove it to you with this brief family history.
My information comes from Ancestry and the Nord Celle orts family book site where I have been lately browsing.
I am personally interested in their family name OTTE. As I study my new family tree of HEINS background. I think it was their influence along with surname of DIETRICH AND BURMESTER, MEYERHOF, which brought my Bergen celle family to the area of Dahlenburg, Bleckede Luneburg [ also surrounding villages] and Dannenberg areas. Also of influence to migration and mingling was the location of a University located at Telmer.



Here an interesting take on the name of Fall Creek Wisconsin. Found in Bergen Cellle or Nord Celle info supposedly from a book about Bergen Celle, which I have never seen.

Okay, now you see how they moved around. Those busy Prohls. I can now easily see why some of my family may have been from Westphalia after all. [ Not these though, lets be clear about that] Speaking of which, I should caution you not to mix up the Munster in Celle, which carries no umlaut and that of Muenster of Westphalia, which does carry a umlaut. I am not sure if there was any roman Catholic religion involved in this family.

I think I also have been a busy little bee, so it's time for me to buzz off.

Note 2:

This tree brings up the surname ELLENBURG from Klein Sommerbeck and her father from Sommerbeck and Dahlenburg. A name which cropped up in my past investigation of the family in the home region area, [ It brought up Seedorf or Neetze location via Hannoverrootsweb's mailing list.] which suggests to me that I should do some further browsing. And maybe that gal from the mailing list because many of her names corresponded with same places as some of my people.
