This is a family tree, reflective of family relationships. It is not a genetic analysis, so some of the relationships in this tree will not be found on Ancestry DNA. If you think being related to someone is by virtue of sharing chromosomes, then technically a husband and wife are not related (at least we hope not). The point being that DNA does not make the family.
I currently have a strong focus on the surnames Schweer, Obrock, Menke (origin near Melle, Germany) and Pühse (origin near Herford, Germany). If anyone has any information on those names, PLEASE contact me.
The surnames of most interest to my continued research are as follows: Obrock, Schweer, Pühse, Schmidt, Schmitt, Wortman, Linneman, Menke, Thomasmeyer, Jöst, Nebel, Glattfeld, Giese, Loll, Diesbrock, Kast, Spangenberg, Mohr, Nagel, Steighe˙, Henderson, Tuen and Sirevåg.
Also, Larson, Feske, Harman, Rosenow, Goldnow, Fink, Quiggle, Randall, Paulson, Layfield, Griffith, ODonnell, Peters, Schaffnit, Frohn, Boehm, Schuhardt, Williamson, Briscoe, Lord, Troutner and Grisham.
Feel free to contact me with any questions. Good luck with your own research!
