This site is an attempt to record what I've learned
about our family history.
I've learned through doing some research that there
are people in different parts of the USA and over seas with the same
last name of Mengersen. I am sure that some of them might be from a
different lineage or may be such a distant relative that they may never
be known or contacted. One of the goals of this web site is to help
our family stay connected even though we live far apart.
I have always been interested in my Heritage and I love visiting my
relatives. In 1986 I traveled to Germany to make the 1st contact with
my relatives overseas in nearly 20 years. The trip was a great success
for me and I would like to think that it helped to spur on many visits
from the German relatives coming to America and many visits from some
of the American relatives including my parents, Ronald and Nancy Mengersen
to Germany. The only regret that I have is that I haven't yet been able
to return to the great country of Germany.
While I was over in Germany staying with the relatives I was able
to obtain information about there part of the family tree but I am sure
that some more relatives may have been born and others may have been
married into the family. I also was able to obtain some information
from relatives here in America and from searching extensively on the
internet. In the course of doing all of this research, I've discovered
that I have many more relatives than I ever thought.
This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information
that might help me complete my ambition.
