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.

In honor of Wednesday's Child, this blog post is about Elisabeth's daughter who died back in GErmany. Rebekka was born December 22, 1863, in Reide, Germany, She died August 10, 1872, in Reide, Germany prior to her nineth birthday. So sad to lose a child.
