How Far Can You Research Your Ancestors?

Tue Jan 01, 2008 9:44 pm

Hi guys !

Well that's the Question .

I can research until 1540 .

It was an Amtsverwalter , and as my Mother said to me was he an confidant of the Danish King . He married Agatha von Leven .

Just found something about his son in German  Smile

Quoting =:
Friedrich Dame

22.7.1567 - 18.12.1635

geboren in einem zum Kloster Preetz gehorendem Ort (vermutlich Dame) , evang. Pastor, Sohn von Henrich Dame, Amtsverwalter in Glucksburg, spater Kaufmann in Flensburg und Agathe von Leve(n) aus der von der Insel Nordstrand stammenden, ... geadelten Familie Leve. Verheiratet am 11.8 1564 in Flensburg mit Margarethe Laurentii, Tochter des Flensburger Diakons Lorenz Jacobsen (Laurentius Jacobi).

Friedrich Dame besuchte seit 1576 in Flensburg und seit 1575 in Herlufsholm auf Seeland das Gymnasium, ging 1586 zum Theologiestudium nach Rostock, 1588 nach Frankfurt/Oder. Dort wohnte er im Hause des Theologen Christoph Pelargus, wurde 1590 Magister und lehrte darauf einige Zeit in der Philosophischen Fakultat. 1592 erhielt er, vermutlich durch Verbindungen zur Familie Rantzau oder zum Munsterdorfer Propst Johannes Vorstius, das Rektorat der Schule in Itzehoe, 1594 wurde Dame Diakon an der Flensburger Nicolaikirche und heiratete bald darauf die Tochter seines Vorgangers. 1600 ruckte er zum Pastor an seiner Kirche auf und 1604 wurde er Propst der Stadt und des Amtes Flensburg. In diesen Amtern blieb er bis zu seinem Tode; nur bei der Besetzung der Herzogtumer durch kaiserliche Truppen floh er 1627 auf Befehl Christians IV. mit seiner Familie nach Seeland. Er lebte vorwiegend in Slagelse, bis er nach dem Frieden von Lubeck 1629 nach Flensburg zuruckkehrte.

Dames schriftstellerische Tatigkeit diente zu einem Teil der Widerlegung theologischer Irrmeinungen. Die kleine Schrift uber die Unsterblichkeit der Vernunft-Seele ist durch den Kryptokalvinismus am Gottorfer Hof veranlasst Die Abhandlung uber die Auferstehung der Toten diente der Widerlegung des Flensburger Konrektors Jacob Neubauer, und die "Abgetrungene Relation" bekampfte die spiritualistischen Anschauungen von Nicolaus Tetingund Hartwig Lohmann , mit denen sich Dame 1622 in Flensburg auseinanderzusetzen hatte. Dennoch lag der Schwerpunkt seines Interesses nicht auf dem Gebiet der Dogmatik sondern auf dem der Frommigkeit. Wie vor allem seine spate Schrift aVom alten und neuen Menschen" zeigt, vertrat er ein wesentlich durch Johann Arndt gepragtes, weltfeindliches Luthertum. Dame scheint in seinem Amisbereich nachhaltig gewirkt zu haben, denn sein Nachfolger Stephan Clotz sah sich zu einem strengen Kirchenregiment im Sinne der Orthodoxie veranlasst. (Schleswig-holsteinische Bibliographien)

Friedrich Dame wurde in Nikolai-Kirche begraben. Das Epitaph befindet sich heute im Eingangsraum der Kirche

Have you done any research ?

I'll go with my whole family on the 3rd to Flensburg , just to do research ! can't wait !

Apparently my great x 10 grandfather was James Brudenell 7th Earl of Cardigan. He led the Light Brigade into that death trap in the Battle of Balaclava. We still look after the estate near Oundle, UK, Deene Hall.

I have never done any research, but when I got together with some family last year, my aunt gave us a folder with a bunch of names. The earliest birth date is from 1830. There is also a photocopy of a marriage certificate from 1886.

The information is just from my mom's side of the family. I'd like to find out info about my dad's side because his parents are from Poland and Russia.

Constantin, how do you go so far back in your family's history? I've always been interested in doing research on family history, but I didn't know where to begin.

My uncle has done a family tree for us back to the mid 15th century (it's pretty sketchy around then). The detailed info starts in the 16th and 17th centuries, apparently several of my ancestors were Lincolnshire non-conformists (Quakers) and were jailed and excommunicated.

We were able to trace our family to about 1400 on my fathers side from German Descent. Turns out I am 4th or 6th cousins with J. Robert Oppenheimer who created the A - Bomb.

Interesting reading. Must be exciting to know that much about an ancestor.

On my father's side, one great great grandfather was born in Brandenburg, West Prussia in 1839. He emigrated to the United States sometime before the Civil War, and served in the 8th Illinois Infantry from 1864 through the end of the war. His bride was born in Baerwalde, Neumark, in 1849. They were married in Beamer, NE, in 1870. The other german ancestors we believe came to the U.S. in the 1870's.

Still tracing my mother's side, which are either Belgian or Dutch and Scottish.

I forget the full details, doesn't help that a certain member of the family has run away with useful bits of the family bible, including the rather beautiful family tree in the front of it... Firstly my family traces back to an area North of London, Gaston Green, which supposedly we gave our name to, although it could just as easily be the other way around. Before that, it was a port on the South Coast of England, where we had arrived on a boat from France in the late 1790's after a rather hasty escape from France when somebody decided that we should be guillotined for owning a bit to much land... It was somewhere along the line after this that we adopted the French first name 'Gaston' as a family name, before that it was something like Bayon, I don't fully remember off the top of my head though and the documents are back at home. We have traced it back a lot further, but it gets quite complicated as much information is missing or not reliable enough.

Perhaps this explains my dislike for the French? Big grin

Well my mother always knew because of her , Grandmother that she had an ancestor which was an Amtsverwalter . So my mother while we lived in Ecuador started to Contact People in Germany and through internet she found more and more .

How did you, or anyone else who's reasearched their ancestors, do your reasearch? I'd like to do this but don't really know where to start.

That's pretty cool... Any idea who any of your other 2,047 great x 10 grandfathers were?

I've seen some histories of both sides of my family. Mostly English on my father's side, and German, Dutch and Welsh on my mother's. It's usually not too hard to find a famous ancestor from a few centuries back, because as I pointed out above, there are just so many grandparents once you get back about a dozen generations....

A cousin of my mother's has been doing some research and went back to the 1740s in the south of Scotland. I have been looking on my father's side and got back to the early 1800s so far.

My mother did some research on her side of the family, and she was able to trace the line back to when King Karl XII returned from Turkey after his ridiculous war against Russia. With him came a Turkish man, probably working for one of the dignitaries who were sent by the Sultan to accompany the Swedish king. This dude took a Swedish name, Wiberg, and married a woman who was apparently working in a tavern, and I'm hoping she tended bar, and nothing else. And that's the start of our family, in Sweden at least.

Quoting FighterPilot (Reply 12):

Well there are many sites , look ancestry in google and you'll find some
I'ld post them but : No adverts of any kind. This includes web pages.

But all this websites aren't really helpful , what you need is someone who goes to all registry offices and follows the line back . If you've German ancestors you may ask the German embassy and they may help you , but what you need is to know at least one city , to start asking there.
