The Ancestors of Thomas John Huelskamp

Thomas John Huelskamp


This site contains my ancestors and thier descendants. I have spent thirty plus years tracing my family tree and I am creating this site to share my work with others. The work that I have done in Belgium, France, Germany and Luxemburg has mostly been done through microfilm records that are available from Salt Lake City at local LDS Family History Centers. If you have information you would like to share with me, please contact me. It will take me several years to get all my information loaded onto this site.
