Guten Morgen, I love your site! Would any of you know

anyone with the last name of "ARBEC"? Relatives of mine

have told me that it originated in Germany. My husband:

Mr. Donald R. Van Wert (Belgian/Dutch) may have some connection, as well. His mother's name was: Evelyn Neering!

His dad: Mr. Bernard Van Wert. Wouldn't it be wonderful if

we were all distant cousins, somehow? Danke, Andrea

PS_Just in case we are related: "Ich liebe dich!" ;-)

Name: Jon Harrison City: Ottawa

I am searching for any information on my grandfather who came from Wales in the late 1800's. He came to Canada at the age of sixteen and settled down in Montreal. He married and had three children whose names were Samuel,Florence and Eddie.He also ran a smoke shop on St. Catherine St. We're sure he had a brother from Ottawa who came over later and was looking for him, but never found him. He may have come from a large family.

My grandfathers name was John Harrison.

To this day we have no idea where he was laid to rest in Montreal. Any information would be very welcomed!

Name: David M. Boldt City: Apache Junction, AZ.

Great Website!

I recently traveled to Germany for my first time. I am a native of Omaha, Nebraska where our Boldt family immigrated after leaving Europe (1900's). After traveling to Munich, I have become interested in reseaching my family history. I am aware that I have ancestors from Hamburg and Frankfurt but I have never done any serious research as to ancestors or current family still residing there. Any pointers on how to get started would be very helpful.

Name: Melissa Boldt City: Vancouver

Hello, my name is Melissa Boldt, and I just happened to come across this site. It's very interesting seeing the pictures, because, even though I'm 15, I've seen very old photos of my deceased relatives, and find striking resemblence between the people on this site, and my ancestors. Although, judging from the great amount of comments you receive, you probably have no interest in me at all. That's fine, I just wanted to say that my family came from Germany. We are now in Vancouver, B.C, Canada, and my grandfather, though he is old and not all there at times, he is absolutely sure that we are related to that guy that built that castle. Alexander Boldt?

Anyways, Thank you for the use and entertainment of your site.

Name: Len Campaigne City: Colorado Springs, CO USA

In the summer of 1957, my family drove from Niagara Falls, Ontario to the Sault, and by train to Hawk Junction, where I had my 5th birthday with my father's uncle's family (Uncle Ross, Aunt Jean, Cousins Sandra and Brian KEOWN).

I am trying to locate my grandmother's family (the KEOWN clan) but her branch of my ancestry remains quite a mystery. I think my grandmother was born on Manitoulin Island as Eunice Josephine? Blanche KEOWN (1908-55). As far as I know, she had at least two brothers (Ross and Blair). She married my grandfather, Harry Oliver CAMPAIGNE (1902-1947) after finishing nursing school in Niagara Falls, Ontario, about 1928, settled there, and gave birth to my dad John Charles CAMPAIGNE (1930-73), and two other boys William 'Bill' Keown (1932-) and Harry 'Buster' (c.1944-). I'd appreciate any help you or your readers can offer to steer me in the right direction.

Name: Dot Waldrip City: Albuquerque

I came to your beautiful site by entering "Schlos Lichtenstein" in Yahoo. I was interested to find a photo of it because my greatgrandmother, Johanne Lopris Wild, used to spend summers with her uncles there. The uncles were physicians to the royal family who were connected with the schlos. In the mid 1960's my mother, father and I visited the castle and were given a tour by the guide who turned out to have been mother's cousin because he was the grandson of the uncles. So I am delighted to find a photo of the place. Thank you.

Then to my surprise you also had posted a photo of the castle at Hechian. My greatgrandfather, Charles Wild, worked on the remodeling of the castle when he was a teenager, before he emigrated to Texas. We visited Hechian in 1965 as well. My greatgrandparents met in DeWitt county in Texas.

Again thank you so much for the photos of these places that mean a lot to our family. We also are cat lovers.

Sincerely,

Dot Waldrip

Lovely Site Hans. Way above my own capability in my embryo site about German Steam Locomotive Performance. Very interesting to read your family history from those terribly troubled 20th century years in Europe. Would be a wonderful base for a book. So I can fully understand why you have such strong anti-war views. I don't want war: the UK has one third of it's Royal Airforce committed and up to 40,000 members of the armed forces heading towards that part of the world. But I will probably accept it if it happens as I don't want to be in a discussion in a few months or few years time about why didn't we do something back in 2003, after IRAQ's leader initiates something that makes 9/11 look like a minor road traffic accident. Of course you have the right of reply to me: you know where to get my E Mail Address. Thanks again for such a lovely site.
