Our Genealogy Section of the website is our most extensive group of topics and the main reason for building the site. It goes hand-in-hand with the History Section in an attempt to weave the two together to show a congruent timeframe and chronological list of occurrences of the Baker and Weigel families.
But before we really get started, let me ask the question... "What is your "relationship" to the Daughter of the Grandson of your Great-Grandmother's, Sister's, Son"? I've always been confused when folks at reunions wanted to talk in terms of the... "1st cousin, twice removed"! They were my cousin... right? Well, sort of, anyway. So how much do you know, or maybe the question should be... "How much do you WANT to know"? The internet can be a bear, sometimes, and totally frustrates me when it's supposed to be my "help mate".
But just take a minute, and in your Google Search (or Bing, or Yahoo, or on, and on), type in "Genealogical Relationship Chart", and hit ENTER! Then sit back and be in total awe of how many ways people attempt to help you understand these relationships! My Google search came up with "about 552,000 and took .41 seconds. That's impressive in itself, but more impressive (or maybe confusing) is when you open the image pages and start to view these charts. As Gomer Pyle used to say... Go-o-o-o-o-l-l-Y!
Well, I looked a lot of them over and if you click this link, you can view the one that I like the most and the one that I can understand the easiest. Maybe it's just me, but try it out. Now, about that question at the beginning of this section... I come up with "3rd Cousin, Once Removed"....! How'd you do?
There are certain sections, again, that will be continually updated. One is the List of Cemeteries, and the second is the List of Deceased. We've done our best to complete the information on deceased family members but, alas, some data fields remain empty. As we continue our search to fill those voids, we will come back and "fill in the blanks". And we certainly want to continue to stress how human we are... mistakes have most likely been made. So please, as you look over the data, if you find a known error in our lists, let us know so it can be corrected as quickly as possible.
Additionally, we will be adding PDF files of extended family genealogy groups to our Baker/Weigel contribution. These too, will be future additions as they get completed in my Family Tree Maker database.
You can access the Genealogy Section from the navigation menu at the top of any of our pages. Click on the down arrow to the right of the Genealogy text to expand the main menu. Once the main menu item has expanded, move your mouse to select the topic of your choice, and left click to select it.
We're glad you've spent time looking at our site and we hope you've found something worthwhile...
