Greetings List Members,
The following is a very relevant item I received from one of my other
lists, which is
so very important to all of us, so thought I'd share with you...
People are having their identities stolen daily by well-meaning
relatives posting private information about them on the web. PLEASE be
careful and considerate! Thanks.
<<A major concern with putting a Web page online, is that you should not

In preparing a talk for my local genealogical society on this
subject, I searched a number of home pages. At one I found the
names of everyone in the family, when and where born, right on
down to a month-old-grandson -- including the hospital in which
he was born.
Some genealogists have written to me claiming it does not matter
what we put up on the Web since "this information is all public
information, anyway." When I queried several of them to provide
the source of birth information posted on their home pages, it
turns out in every instance that the data were either supplied by
a cousin or they obtained it from a GEDCOM. In other words, they
had not found the information from a public source at all.
The following policy is posted at "Don't Mess with the Living, Texas"
"It is the policy of the Texas GenWeb Project to protect the
rights and privacy of our living relatives. We strongly encourage
all involved to do their best not to place information on the
Internet about anyone who is still living, unless you have their
express permission to do so."
Among the suggestions for ways to protect living family members are:
-- When requesting information (via e-mail, chat, queries, etc.)
do not include personal information on living persons.
-- When responding to requests for information, especially to
someone you really do not know, do not provide them with
personal information on living persons. They could post it on
the Web or do who knows what else with it.
-- Before sharing GEDCOM files with others, remove information on
all living persons. Programs such as GEDClean, GEDLiving, and
GEDPrivy will do this for you.
-- If you have a genealogy Web site, be sure to remove
information on all living persons. (Cyndi's Genealogy Home
Page Construction Kit <http://www.cyndislist.com/construc.htm>
has tips and links to the GEDCOM utility programs that will
exclude information about the living.)
British genealogists are using the "GEN100" logo to signify that
their Web site respects a cut-off date of 100 years, and to
advise that information which is less than 100 years old will not
be divulged. Many Americans use 1920 as the cut-off point, since
that is the most recent census available to the public.

Hi, I am looking for information on a William Wendt and Christina
Hamker. Jannette was able to tell me they were married in Chickasaw Co
on 23 Apr 1893. Was wondering if there was any other info out there.
William and Christina had these children that I know of. Fred (my
great-grandfather) born 1894, Harold, Elmer, and Ida. William may have
had a brother August and maybe John. I am not sure. Any information
would be helpful.
Thank you Carolyn, I appreciate your response and time looking this up!!

In the History of Frederickburg (no date given) there is a Ludwig, August.
(A.F.) was born in Germany. Came to America with his parents. Locating in
Bremer Co, IA. Married in 1876 to Ada Knight, daughter of Albert Knight.
August was a farmer and came to Frederickburg township in 1881. He and his
wife had six children, Ada, Chris, Grace, Erwin, Katie and Glenn. Erwin
died July 14 1895. None of the children are married. Grace and Kate carry
on dress making at Sumner. Mr. Ludwig farms 340 acres.
I will double check, next week, on the spelling of Ludwig. I think it was
written as Ladwig, but I wrote Ludwig.
Hope this helps some.
Is there any Purcell Michael, Clinch John, Clynch John, Ahern, or Carroll
listed on the film.
I found a Michael CARROLL in The History of Frederickburg, page 101. He
was born in Ottawa Co, Ohio. Parents were from Ireland. Michael moved to
Frederickburg in 1865. Owned land in Stapleton township. Spent most of his
time in town. He went back to Ohio several times. Rebuilt a house in town
and rented it. He went back to Ohio on business and was taken sick and

In 1833, Bradford was designated as the county seat, and the following
officers were elected on April 3, 1854: James Lyon, judge; S.C. Goddard,
clerk; John Campbell, treasurer and recorder; D.A. Babcock, prosecuting
attorney; and Andy Sample, sheriff. The only record which shows the date of
this election is James L. Frazee as bondsmen, (this was preserved from the

says that S. C. Goddard resigned as county clerk and that J.A.J. Bird was

Nashua, Bradford township, Chickasaw Co, IA? He married Emiline Graham in

then to New Hampton, IA. His son Byron was a business man and farmer there.
I do know that Andrew died in Nashua and is probably buried there. Is there
anyone who might be able to do a lookup on any of this line in IA?
Andrew was brother to my gg grandfather. I haven't been able to access a

I would very much appreciate information on the Goddards that you could dig
up. I recently asked for information on my father in law Teddy Joe Cero.Since
then my wife and I met with her sister and she also said she remembers
visiting their grandparents in Bassett. They both said the home was in town
and one cousin said that both Joe and Jessie are buried in Bassett. Anyway my
wife's grandparents Joe and Jessie Cero had six children.
Charlie,Dewey,Mildred,Bill, Teddy Joe (my father in law) and Joe who was
killed in the 2nd world war. Hope you can do me some good. Gene

My searching is from late 1850's to 1926 in Chickasaw County. I don't have
a library of helpful sources, but presently have on loan at the local LDS
library a film on Chickasaw Co. It has many family bibles, history of the
county, and history of many churches, some cemeteries and burials in Cagley
Cemetery and a couple others.
I would be happy to do look up's for any one, while I have the film.
This is Bonita from Texas. I am searching HILLMER WELLS McMANIGLE KRUMREY
MANNING and SHAVE, to mention a few, in both Chickasaw and Floyd Counties.
Time frames are from 1870+. I will get more detailed in later message.
Are we the only two besides Jannette??
