    1. [GRANDT] German Genealogy Web Site
    2. Sheryl Grandt
    3. I found this site through an Ancestry newsletter.  I haven't really had a chance to look at it.  It has links to some German genealogy Web sites (including one for Schleswig-Holstein).  If I could read German, it might be helpful.  Sheryl

    1. [GRANDT] Pilot of New Family Search
    2. Sheryl Grandt
    3. is piloting a new search engine.  On the results page, you can see the parents and in the case of census records, it shows the children, etc. enumerated in the census.  The nice thing is some of the records have the image attached to it.  For example, I found Detlef and Christine Grandt in the 1900 census.  When I clicked on the record, in the upper right-hand corner, it had the icon for the image.  I clicked on it and was able to see the census record (for free).  Unfortunately, they haven't digitized the German baptisms yet and they don't have everything indexed, but take it for a spin.  Sheryl

    1. [GRANDT] Memorial Day
    2. Sheryl Grandt
    3. I hope everyone enjoys this Memorial Day as we remember all those who have served our country.  Ancestry is offering free access to their military records until the end of the month.  Yes, I've been scouting around and adding to my reams of paper.  I thought for this Memorial Day I'd share one record I found on Ancestry.  This isn't one of my relatives (not yet), but he has always intrigued me.  Heinrich Grandt served during the Civil War.  He served in the Iowa 26th Infantry, E.  He was born in 1883 in Prussia, Germany and died 26 Oct 1897.  He is buried in a cemetery in Wall Lake, Iowa.  According to his military records from NARA, he fought in the battle at the Post of Arkansas in January 1863 and also at Walnut Hill near Vicksburg, Mississippi in May 1863.  He was musterd in on 4 Oct 1862 and enlisted in Lyons, Iowa.  He was discharged on 29 Dec 1864.  Let's not forget those who served our country.  Sheryl Grandt, PLCGS

    1. Thoms-Grandt
    2. Sheryl Grandt
    3. I'm not sure if this is our same mysterious Mrs. Grandt or not. I found an obituary in 1963 for Arthur Thoms of Park Ridge. On the listing of sisters and brothers, it listed the deceased siblings as well including an Annie Grandt. I have not been able to find any obituaries or anything for her. I have found a Henry Thoms who was married about 1893 or 1897. Sheryl

    1. Thom-Grandt connection
    2. Sheryl Grandt
    3. I've been going through back issues of the Daily Herald from suburban Chicago. I found an obituary for a Henry Thoms which mentions a relation to a Mrs. Grandt in 1922. It says the funeral was at St. John and he was buried in Niles. In 1923, it says Mrs. Grandt (nee Thoms) of Jefferson Park celebrated her birthday with family. Anybody have an idea who this mysterious Mrs. Thoms-Grandt is? Sheryl
