IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: I have moved most of the data for my paternal
ancestors to a new site at Rootsweb. Please go there to follow
his line of descent.
|Fig. 1. My mother, Mary Margaret Gailliot, ca 1938.
My mother's paternal ancestors the GAILLIOT and DUMOULIN families were from respectively, North Rhein Westphalia, Germany, and Alsace (now part of France); and her maternal ancestors the AUSTEL and GUTGSELL families came from respectively, Bohemia (now part of Czech Republic) and France. The descendents of these families came to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in early 1880's to work in the steel mills.
|Fig. 2. My father, Robert Carl Kramp, nee. Robert Karl Strike,
My father's paternal ancestors were the STREICH and HOHNKE and adopted KRAMP families; and his maternal ancestors the RUSSELL and HARTLEY families. For my Father's Branch of my ancestral tree, please visit his web site.
Fig. 3. On A Family History Trip to Germany, Alsace, and Switzerland, Aug/ Sep, 2001Genealogy and searching for Family History combine all the passions of my twilight years: research, writing, history, travel (including hiking and bicycling), languages, photography, adventure, meeting new people and places, and yes, eating. It's all represented, or almost all, in this photo taken in Köln (a.k.a. Cologne), Germany, with the medieval gate and walls of the old city behind me. Where did this adventure lead me? Who was I looking for? Who and what did I find? View a photojournal of my trip.
