Progress on Genealogy

Friday, 27 March 2009 20:35

It's amazing what you can find on the Internet these days. With the help of Google,, and I was able to trace my family tree back as far as the late 17th century in Schleiswig-Holstein, Preussen (Germany). Google led me to a survey of gravestones in Jackson County, Iowa. With the information I already had from my grandparents, I was able to find the father of my great-great-grandfather, Claus H. Krabbenhoft. I was able to verify a lot of information from the 1880 census information available on had all the rest of the information.

Genealogy Update!

Most of the genealogical information I had was actually for my paternal grandmother's side - the Bergs. I have made some pretty good progress on that side. However, my information on Krabbenhofts further back than my great grandfather Harry Krabbenhoft is scarce. Hopefully, I can get in touch with my great aunt and get more info. If you're related to any Krabbenhofts in the Quad Cities area, I'd like to hear from you.

If you had an old account...

You'll need to sign up for a new one. I was not able to convert the users from my old system to the new system. Sorry. All the Krabbenhoft on the Web links made it over, and all of the galleries. PLEASE NOTE: You need to be a registered user to view the family galleries. I don't have much posted in the public galleries right now - just my coffee tables.

Genealogy script installed

Whew! I finally have the genealogy script installed and working. It's really not user friendly, but I can see that it's going to be really useful. I have a big box of stuff to put in it that goes back several generations. It will be pretty cool to see it all working.

If you want to get your own tree started, please feel free to sign up for an account. I have to approve all new users, but I'll try to get you approved in a timely manner.

Coffee Tables

I still have two coffee tables left over from a show back in 2005 that I'd like to sell. The two tables in the front right are currently taking up space in my living room. I have tried to sell them at local shops for $1,299, but haven't found my market yet. Make me an offer. Shipping will have to be by freight and will probably be in the $40-$50 range.

Send me an message if you're interested.
