Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My earliest known ancestor's name was Wolfgang Ringer, born about 1630. His family eventually immigrated to Chester then Somerset Counties in Pennsylvania and were Mennonites. My ancestor's names are as follows, starting with my grandfather and going back in time. Lloyd Lee Ringler, Levi martin Ringler, Galentine, Aexander, Henry, Jacob, John, Mathias, Wolfgang jr., Wolfgang Sr. They changed their name from Ringer to Ringler in the U.S. I have started a Ringler family history group facebook, where I am uploading photos, documents and lore if you are interesting in collaborating about genealogy with other Ringlers. It'd be great to add you as a friend to the group!
