My grandmother and great aunti managed to claw our way back to the late
1100s - there were 3 lesser nobility families that swapped kids around
for treaty purposes, the various wars and such made it pretty much
impossible to go any further back - they were told they might have to go
in person to tromp around ruined churches and check with Rome to see if
any paperwork had been filed with the Holy See over something or
another. Love the corner of Netherland, Alsace and Belgium. Ultimately
we are more or less related to any family of any upper birth status in
that corner of the area. The British Isles thread of the family goes
back to the mid 1300s. Mom's side being peasants are pretty anonymous
previous to their ending up in the Colonies, as anabaptists the
catholics hated them and we would have to go through a whole bunch of
trial records to find anything out, probably but the Amish are
particularly uninterested in geneology as we practice it .
