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.
I can't provide any direct help, but my ggrandfather was August Benjamin Schwerdtfeger (shortened to Schwertfeger), b. 1836 in Pommern, Prussia and their daughter, my grandmother, Magdalena was born in Sterling, IL in 1869. August had a sister, Augusta, who married a Kleinschmidt and lived in Pittsburg, KS and a brother, Albert, who later lived in Caldwell, KS. I have no records of Peter or Herman, but there are too many coincidences here. There must be some connection.
