Starting Sept. 30, 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.
Was that EIGHTEEN-69? or NINETEEN-69? :-) I do remember seeing a Matthias Theis on the 1870 census in Minnesota.... town of Louisville... (Scott County)... age 44 from Rhine,Prussia, Germnany... wife Theresa (from Darmistat), age 44 and six children... all born in Minnesota...Michael (?) 14, Adam 13, Katrina 11, Pauline 6, Matthias 5, and Mary age 2. In the 1880 census, there was also a child, John Joseph, born about 1871. (Matthias was still in Louisville, Scott, Minnesota in 1880.)
