Please ignore all e-mail links to me that appear in these pages except THIS ONE. I am in the process of re-generating pages and using new software. Please be patient.



These pages began for the purpose of giving the genealogy of the Krumwiede Family of Iroquois County, Illinois. In researching sources for information about the family and its major sub-divisions, I found it necessary to divide the files into several distinct parts: Descendants of Jürgen Heinrich Krumwiede and Kath. Maria Buchholz, the Hilgendorfs, the Hartkes, the Luhrsens and Descendants of Ulrich Eden Theesfeld. In addition you will find the Descendants of Jann Janssen Theesfeld, my mother's family, which also intersects with the family of Ulrich Eden Theesfeld.

A heartfelt plea to people in my family and others from Buckley and the surrounding area: If you have visited these pages, I would really appreciate hearing from you. Please e-mail me. I keep a mailing list, divided according to areas of interest, and send out batch notices for updates.

No -- I didn't know that!

Know what? I don't know as much as you think I do! Several times a  year a person has said to me, "But I just figured you knew that."

The reason I don't know things people think I know is because of when we moved away from Buckley -- when I was 14. This is the age at which you probably started paying real attention to the actual relationships in the families. I never figured out those things because I wasn't around for the weddings and babies and parties that made these things clear to others as they grew up.

If you know of a cousin marriage I haven't found, or if you know that two people in these files are brothers or sisters and I don't show them to be related, PLEASE tell me.

I hope you will enjoy following the family lines through their twists and turns. PLEASE - use your BACK button to return from any location you have gone to.
