Thank you for the opportunity to show you some of the
web sites with which I have been associated.
Here they are:
This features ancestors
from my parents' families, among others.
These ancestors are the earliest ones that I have record
of in each of the Burnett, Byers, Hickman (was Heckmann),
Rowe and Payne Families. I have included
Byers because I came across work that someone had done some
time ago and it seemed sad if this work would go
Other Genealogy Researchers
Links to other researchers are provided for each of the
Burnett Hickman Payne Rowe
One researrcher is particularly worth mentioning.
He is Don
Hickman, who has described the immigration and
migration of the
Heckmann/ Hickman family from Mörzheim, Germany to
Cedar Rapids, Iowa. My branch of the family
moved from there to Grand Junction, Colorado.
Don has done a wonderful job!
Throughout the years my grandmother, mother, aunts and
others clipped newspaper clippings about events and things
that they considered noteworthy. These
clippings usually found themselves in a drawer
somewhere. I thought that I would post them on
the site, since they might be of interest to others.
Since technology has advanced, some of the later
clippings are actually not scanned clippings as the earlier
ones, but regular HTML files produced by the newspapers or
other publisher and made available in that form.
They have been divided into four groups.
The Timeline attempts to blend
world history with the immigration and migration of the
Burnett, Heckmann/ Hickman, Payne and Rowe families. Hopefully, this
will help relate the reader to what is happening in the
world as the familys move.
The Nordrhein-Westfalen GenWeb Site
(Northrhine-Westphalia) GenWeb site is part of the
World GenWeb Project and is
intended for those searching for ancestors from the region
in Germany where this German state now exists.
It is closely related to the Ancestry.com NRW Query
Board, for those who wish to post their NRW ancestors
or search for therir NRW ancestors. The site
has been around for a long time, so there there is a
section of Older
Queries which were posted between January, 1970 and
June, 1998 when Queries were processed in a different way
and serves as a kind of archive.
This site is full of links to personal websites and
geniological websites in the US and NRW, many in
German. There is information about the older
regions which comprise this part of Germany and the present
Governmental Districts and Counties of NRW.
Site is physically located in Burbach, Germany.
With this site I hope to better communicate with
native Germans about genealogy, history, etc.
The different divisions are:
Eckmannshausen Nachkommen von
Georg Jacob Heckmann Zeittafel zur Geschichte, a
kind of German version of >the
Timeline described above.
This site is presently under
construction. It has to do with my interests
in colmology and basic research. While waiting
for its compleation, please check the links in the left
Thanks for the opportunity to show you my pages. I look forward to having you contact me!
