Waltman Reunion, Waltman Family in Clarke County, Shubuta, Mississippi 39360. Contact: Rodney Waltman at Chfcarmac@aol.com --
Every April

The history of Germany, the birth place of the distinquished ancestors of the Waltman Family.is marked by its political disunity and for centuries, what is today known as Germany was merely a loose federation of independent states. This problem was compounded by the size of the country and by the fact that is lacked natural boundaries.

Waltman Viking Era: Scandinavian Tribes
Scandinavian tribes around the Baltic gradually spread throughout Europe and even into Africa. Amongst the various tribes, the Visigoth migrated into Spain, the Vandals into North Africa, and the Angles and Saxons into England. In the process they conquered the Celts and pushed them further west and into the Roman Empire. Around 100 B.C. they also came into contact with the expanding Roman Empire themselves.

The illustrious ancestors of the house of Waltman were to wait until the 19th century to see a unified German state.

I am researching the Waltmon/Waltman Family in Jackson County, Wade, Mississippi. First appears William Asbury Waltmon in Jackson County,Wade, Mississippi on marriage license with Nancy N. Goff d/o Sheriff James Goff and Eustibee Nancy Powell.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.

To The Future Generations:

In due respect of the future-- The Past is soon forgotten unless there is some sort of DOCUMENTATION set aside to refresh one's memory. So we have written this book for all of our past relative's and to all our FUTURE GENERATION--
we do hope and pray that this book will somehow inspire a small part in keeping the PAST KNOWN.

The purpose of this Web page is to gather historical documents related to the WALTMAN/WALTMON family, and make them available to genealogists and family historians. We now have a way of verifying the common bond between the many branches of the WALTMAN family with our forebear, Conrad Waltman. The recent advent of DNA genetic genealogy, specifically the Y chromosome test, can verify current genealogy and establish direct paternal links. The Y chromosome is passed practically unchanged from father to son, generation after generation. Thus, all males who have an unbroken direct line of descendency from Conrad Waltman would carry his Y chromosomes, and this can be determined through Y chromosome testing.

    KATRINA........Hurricane Katrina below show affected areas as it hit Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the northwest Florida coast of the Gulf of Mexico on August 29, 2005.The purpose of these images is to assist executives and their advisors who may be considering this region as a business location, and put it in perspective, since this was one of the worst storms on record to hit the United States.  It is a rare, catastrophic event.For perspective, the last Category 3 hurricane to directly hit New Orleans and the Gulfport-Biloxi area was Betsy in 1965, forty years ago.Hurricane Camille (Category 5) was the second worst storm on record in the US when it hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast in August 1969 with 174 mph winds and a 20 foot storm surge.Hurricane Frederic hit eastern Mississippi again near Pascagoula in 1979.  Although much less destructive than Camille, Frederic did damage 180 miles inland, disrupting power and business for a week....Poem has been awarded our prestigious Editor's Choice Award because it displays an original perspective and unique creativity -- judged to be the qualities found most in exceptional poetry.
