The Schwindelers are from a rural area in what is called Emsland around the Haseluenne area. Bernard John Schwindeler came from Herzlake not Hertzlage. My brother Franz Scwindeler lives in Herzlake. Ankum where his wife came from is only 20miles from Herzlake. I was born and grew up in Westerloh only 10 miles from Herzlake. My father was Bernard Scwindeler and we traced the name back to 1765 to Johann, Hermann Schwindeler in Bueckelte near Haseluenne. He was married to Anna Maria Blanke on 4/10/1785. I don't think that Bernard John Schwindeler was a child of theirs. Now we did have relatives in the Herzlake area which must be your roots. If you would like I will have my brother check the records in Herzlake. I am sure there is some connection in our background. Have you ever traveled to Germany to retrace your roots?
I sure would like to hear from you.
