I'm hoping everyone in this threadgroup sees this:

These Rau ancestors tie into mine! I'm in the process of putting together all my info for the group, and trying to figure out all the sources. I'm not fully organized with sources - but I do have a rough pedigree chart put together. It branches into siblings families, all over the place, really. I have a lot of what's been mentioned here.

I do have 13 Jacob Raus listed in this jumble of a family, including the one in the 1st post.

THAT Jacob Rau's parents are Frederick Rau (b: 1820) and Barbara Klipfel (b: 1826). I have 9 kids in this family listed, and their families down to grandkids, mostly-then out on the branches of spouses' families. It pulls in 2 Aldinger girls that married Rau boys.

Frederick Rau's parents are Friedrich Rau (b: 1788) and Barbara Klipfel(b:1792). I have 8 kids in this family listed, and come through one of their sons named Gottlieb, who married Magdalena/Magdeline Frey. I'd love to write it all here, but there's a ridiculous amount of info. It would be too confusing. Would anyone like me to email a copy of the file? What genealogy programs are you using?

I'll warn you: some of the info comes from extended relatives, I haven't had time to check and list ALL sources. I believe some of it comes from the infamous Stumpp book, which I have found to be mildly inaccurate at times. I have looked up and scanned the actual records from St. Petersburg for my line (Gottlieb and Magdalena's family), and found a couple kids not listed in Stumpp that had died, etc. At this point, I'm trying to get a handle on sources for my direct line, and just a understanding of the family-it's not all complete.

Oh - THERESADUKAS: I've got a lot of Christ or Chris or Christian Raus listed, I really want to know which you're related to! Do you know dates or his parents' names? I'd love to tie it in.

I look forward to hearing from any of you!
