Waldeck Family Genealogy Forum
I am lucky enough to trace my lineage through a book called the Waldeck Story by Norma Smith. Frederick and Frederica Waldeck came from Germany to Perth Australia as Missionaries in the 1800's and eventually died in Geraldton, Western Australia. Their ancestry is traced back to the Waldeck Castle (edge of the forest?), so I would guess contradictory to many posts in this forum, there might be some royalty back there or maybe it was just some rich dude with a big castle. Has anyone been there? I believe it is near where the dam busters did their bit in WW2. One day I will hope to get across and see it because I believe it is a tourist attraction over there.
Personally I am on the Gold Coast and I donít think there are too many of us in Australia that come through that lineage.
