A DNA project has been started for the WIDEMAN and variant spellings
If you are, or know of a male WIDEMAN, please encourage them to DNA test.
It is hoped that eventually through a match either with someone in Germany,
or with a WEIDMANN whose origin in Germany is known, that it will lead to
finding the origin of Johann Henrich WEIDEMANN [Henry WIDEMAN], the ancestor
of the Jefferson County, Missouri WIDEMAN family and finding him in records
If you have any questions, please contact me off list.

He is the former Director of the Libraries Division of the Family History Department, a position in which he had the responsibility to manage the thousands of family history centers worldwide. He is also a past-president of the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). His current assignment promises to transform the way genealogists access original documents pertaining to their family history research.
Additional speakers include Suzanne Russo Adams, AG manager at Ancestry.com; John Dougan, archivist for the State of Missouri; and William Seibert, archivist, NARA's National Personnel Records Center.
This all-day conference is the largest such single-day event in the Midwest. This year's conference features nationally-recognized speakers, outstanding local speakers, a large and bustling vendor area, and an optional lunch.
