My family, my life, my story. This blog is my record of my search for ancestors here in the United States and their countries of origin. It is also a record of my life and that of my descendants. Genealogy is a long time passion of mine and I hope you will join me. My main surnames of interest are Grashoff, White, Chaffin, Wells, Matzdorff, Fogleman, Stinehart, Omvig. Past, present, and future all come together. Preserving the present is as important as discovering the past.

Marriage Record of Harm Grashoff
This is a copy of the marriage record of Herman Grashoff and his first wife, Margarethe Elisabeth Schweke. You can see the translation below it. A very nice gentleman from Germany made copies of the local church records for me and sent me the photos of the Grashoff home and headstone. As you can see it states that Harm is the son of Joh Heinri and Adelh Lange. They were married October 13, 1851, in Reide, Germany. Harm would be the Great Great Grandfather of Frances Banset whose funeral was held today in Omaha, Nebraska.
