I am researching the following names--I'd like what information I can on them:
from Ireland--Woods, Wood
from Switzerland and Pennsylvania--Haldeman, Halteman, Stauffer, Heistand, Funk, Bauer,
from Germany--Wolffram (which became Wolfram), Godshalk,
from Silesia (present day Poland, Czeck Republic)--Schultz, Heydrick, Jäckel, Yeakel.
from Denmark--Thomsen, Berendsen, Fabricus, Harder, Lauridsen, Lauritzen, Johannsen, Kisendal, Kissendahl, Råckmann
from Finland (or Poland)--Zerakitzky,
from Scotland--Bissett, Imray
from England--Copes
from Holland--Roosa, DeWitt, Op Den Graeff,
The family, since they came to America, have been centered in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The SURNAMES in my ancestry are:
On my Father's side: Albert, Berendsen, Dethelessen, Fabricus, Harder, Hansen, Hemesbock, Johannsen, Kippers, Kisendal, Lauridsen, Lorentzsen, Matzen, Miang, Raackmann, Thomsen, Torp, Volbert, Wolfram, Wolffram, Zerakitzky.
On my Mother's side: Bachmann, Baer, Bauer, Bissett, Clemmens, Comes, Copes, DeWitt, Frey, Fried, Funck, Funk, Gerhard, Godshalk, Gottschall, Haldeman, Hall, Halteman, Hiestand, Heydrick, Hoffman, Imray, Jäckel, Jensen, Johnson, Kolb, Krey, Landis, Meyer, Musselman, Op Den Graeff, Paeldin, Pawling, Reif, Ryff, Roosa, Schnebelli, Scholtze, Schultz, Seipt, Shelly, Showalter, Stauffer, Stone, Updegrave, Willener, Wood, Woods, Yeakel, Ziegler.

Henry G. WOLFFRAM and his wife Wilhelmenia immigrated to the United States in 1884 from Berlin.
Nicholas HALDEMAN of Lower Salford Township, Montgomery County, PA arrived in the United States in 1727 from Switzerland. I am a descendant of his son Christian. My family spells the name HALTEMAN.
Hans Johannes STAUFFER and his cousin, Christian STAUFFER (both are my ancestors) were two of the founders of the family in Pennsylvania, and tradition says they are descended from the Imperial House of HOHENSTAUFEN, who were the Holy Roman Emperors. Unfortnately this imperial link is discounted by modern day genealogists; the family is traced back to the 1300s Switzerland.
Robert WOOD, later WOODS, came to America from Northern Ireland in 1854; he was an Orangeman, and his wife's name was Elizabeth HALL (also from Ireland).
Carl THOMSEN (1861-1945) arrived in the United States from Denmark in 1889 with his wife Johanne. He was from Fredericia, but his family was from Sønderborg. Two of his siblings remained in Denmark; one is said to have gone to Australia; and another is said to have gone to Canada. If you have information on these other branches, I would be grateful. Johanne's family lived in Skjern and were ZERAKITZKY; her mother's family was LAURIDSEN, and they moved to Skjern during her childhod.
I am willing to share the information I have, and I am principally interested in the Wolfram, Thomsen, Lauridsen and Zerakitzky families at present, but I am willing to explore any branch of the family. Especially my Schwenkfelder ancestry.
