What were you like? You are only as I can
imagine you to be. Slowy, as I find my
way through this treasure hunt,
each clue, a treasure in itself, I put together
the pieces of the puzzle.
When my puzzle is complete, I hope to
find not only what made you.... you...but
what makes me...me.
I now have a message forum..follow the link on
below. I am receiving many emails from
people who looks like they have the same line,
although not related to mine. Feel free to post,
and check back for replies..I have only put
the forum up on 11/19 so it's brand new.
I have quite a bit of information....more than I could possibly list here...so I have published my information on 3 sites..
Rootsweb and Familytree Maker. I also
have some information on Ancestry.com
If you would like, I can email you a Family
Tree maker file on specific lines. Please,
take a look at what I have published. Many of the names I have researched,
I do not have the record of them coming
to the United States. My records of
my family coming to the United States
start in the 1850's. Prior to 1850..back
to 1532..my research all pertains to Germany. But I will be more than happy
to send you a FTM file on any similar name. But remember..I cannot research
forward for you, you need to research backward to me. Thanks!
My Great grandparents..John and Catherine
Acker and their 5 sons:
Albert, Edward, William, Joseph, and John.
They later had Raymond, Claire, Marie, and
My great grandfather John Acker

surnames also: Hand, Wetzel, Leingang,
Hellman, Martin, Seelinger, Kunz, Kupper, Wagner, Wolff, Hengen, Hemmerle, Oppenroder, Floss, Messmer, Schulz, Dudenhofer and Gotzinger. Keep in mind

Germany. Their son John also came with them, I have John's immigration in June 1883.
Here's a list of their genealogy and their spouses...I will only list their names...contact me for more info..including how they fall in my tree and dates. In almost every case..all of
their records show them only living in Rulzheim. Also keep in mind..this is not all of
