Family Additions

I was married on December 23, 2010, thus resulting in a new familial connection.  My new husband goes back to the Callahans of Galena, Jo Daviess County, Illinois.  I have found quite a list of interesting information on hsi paternal ancestors.  Naturally the Callahans originate in Ireland.

As for my mother-in-law's side, they are German and Austrian, through names such as Ehlers and Leik, also in Iowa and Illinois.

It's quite a dose of new blood for me!  I will finish posting the ahnentafels on my family, and right now I am preparing for my British adventures.

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!

  1. Congrats on your marriage! I love researching my husband's line, even though it is frustrating how much easier his ancestors are to find. Best of luck to you.

  2. Congrats and best wishes for much happiness.

  3. Congratulations! I'm also of the Callahans of Galena, so welcome to the family too. :-)
