About Me

I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn’t able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, “Didn’t my great-grandfather fight in World War I? And wasn’t his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died.” That’s what started it all.  I can be reached at charles dot thomas at wisc dot edu (with the appropriate replacements made).

    I have a Krueger family book, they came from Prussia Germany. But I am unable to find any names you have listed on your site. The oldest Krueger I have in my tree is my fifth great grandfather his name was
    Johann Krueger born 1775 in Niederhagen, Rheinisch-Bergischer Kreis, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany I see the map you posted, and a similar map is in my family book so what I am saying is, I think we are related, possibly…

    Reading your family’s tory, I was surprised to see the photo of Philomene Cottenoire who is the eldest child of François Olivier Cotnoir born on december 1, 1810 in Maskinonge Qc Canada and Marguerite Gauguet. Philomene is the sister of Louis Treffle Cottenoir (you see that the names are not spelled the same way but they are brother and sister) Louis Treffle Cottenoir was the brother of my great-grand father Joseph Hildege Cotnoir and all those information are available on our family tree website : http://www.classicalacarte.net/Genealogie2013/Cotnoir120313/main.htm Jute click on letter C and you will find a list of family name and click on Cotnoir François -Olivier.
    I’d like to know if you give me the permission to import Philomene’s phot to our website http://www.famillecotnoirfamily.ca
