I am researching my family lines as well as my husband's. My main interest is in my direct lines -- with the surnames WILLENBRING, BACKES, KOTTKE, FAHNING, GEHRKE, all from Minnesota and Germany; KLOSTERMANN from Minnesota, Iowa, and Germany; and BOCK from Missouri and Germany.
Additionally, I am researching DRAKE, ALLEY, DUNCAN, VAIL, NOXON, REYNOLDS, and DE ST. LEGIER of my husband's line. They were from the Isle of Man, England (in the 1700s) and the state of New York. My mother in law graciously bequethed to me her research, and I have so far entered over 3100 names in another program.

Please contact me at my e-mail address if you believe we might be able to help each other with our genealogical research.Please be patient if you do not hear from me right away. I have "Swiss cheese" for memory since being shot at -- in addition to being a full time graduate student and mom.

And please -- do not copy any of my family information and call it your own. You will be cursed with never getting another break in your entire life and all of your ancestors will come after you!

In case I ever move, or my computer crashes, my surnames are also listed on Rootsweb ( with my most current e-mail address. I no longer list my home address due to the large volume of unsolicited junk mail I received. Sorry, just one of the problems of the automated age.

I look forward to connecting and sharing information with "cousins" who have been bitten by the genealogy bug.
